Mini Mexican Lasagnas made in muffin pans.
If you live somewhere that they make fresh tortillas I’m sure those are better so get those but if you can’t any ol’ tortillas will work. I’m using “any ol tortillas”. They were a little crumbly but they were in the fridge when I decided I wanted to make these.
In a bowl mix cooked ground beef and onions with ground cumin, chili powder, red pepper, salt, and pepper.
add diced tomatoes. I drained mine a little first.
In another bowl mix egg, and shredded pepper jack cheese.
Drain the cottage cheese and then combine into the egg and cheese mixture.
Carefully place the tortillas in muffin cups.
Spoon in a layer of beef mixture. Pull off a few of the doubled over pieces of tortilla and layer it on top of the beef mixture.
Spoon on cheese mixture and Bake at 350° for 30 minutes
Chop some tomatoes and lettuce even if you decide the lettuce will not fit on top of the muffin sized little Mexican Lasgnas two minutes later.

Eat one then rearrange the plate so it doesn’t look like anyone took any.
