Mexican Lasagna

2 Lbs. ground beef

1 can (16 oz.) refried beans

1 can (4 oz.) chopped green chilies

1 envelope taco seasoning

2 Tbsp. taco seasoning

2 Tbsp. hot salsa

4 cups (16 oz.) shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese, divided

12 oz. uncooked lasagna noodles

2 cups water

2 cups (16 oz.) sour cream

1 can (2 ¼ oz.) sliced ripe olives, drained

3 green onions, chopped

1 medium tomato, chopped, optional

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.  Stir in the beans, chilies, taco seasoning and hot salsa.

In a greased 13×9 inch baking dish, layer a third of the noodles and meat mixture.  Sprinkle with 1 cup of cheese.  Repeat layers twice.

Combine mild salsa and water; pour over top.  Cover and bake at 350 F. for 1hour or until heated through.
