Beef Enchilada Lasagna


1.5 lb - ground beef
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 small onion - chopped
2 - 14 ounce cans enchilada sauce
3/4 cup *mexican sour cream
1 - 4 ounce chopped green chiles
3-4 cups - cheddar cheese
1 pkg - no boil lasagna
pickled jalapenos - garnish

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In a medium saucepan, cook the ground beef and onion (reserving some onion for garnish). Add the cumin, black pepper and red pepper 

Once the beef is brown, add the green chiles

Drain the beef of excess oil

In a medium bowl, whisk enchilada sauce ( I used Hatch Tex Mex flavor sauce) & mexican sour cream together

Coat the bottom of a 13X9 pan with the enchilada/sour cream mixture

Add a layer of lasagna noodles (about 3)

Cover with more sauce, lightly

Sprinkle with ground beef mixture and with cheese

Repeat layers - about 2-3
Cover the top with cheese and garnish with sliced jalapenos & onions

Bake for 25-30 minutes

Let it set for about 10 minutes before serving

*Note - if you cannot find mexican sour cream, you can use regular sour cream.

Eclipse en Espanol

So, even though I've read the Twilight books about 3 or 4 times now
(the last time when New Moon came out)
I needed to refresh myself on the latest one that is coming out on 6/30

I don't have my own copy, sooo
I went to Half Price books
and picked up this copy


I get home.. and sit down to read it .. and low and behold
it's the ESPANOL version
so I have to go back to Half Price
Thankfully they had another copy - and it was actually about $1.50 cheaper
 (Although later that day, I was at Walmart, and it's out in the small paperback for only $5.97)
heavy **sigh***
