Meatless Mexican Lasagna

I wanted to create a meatless Mexican dish and try to hide some veggies in it and this lasagna worked! My picky husband didn't know until I told him. Serve with sour cream.

  • cooking spray

  • 1 medium yellow squash, grated

  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion

  • 1 (16 ounce) can vegetarian refried beans

  • 4 (10 inch) whole wheat tortillas

  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup cottage cheese

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray. Add squash and onion and cook over medium heat until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add refried beans and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  3. Using 1/4 of the ingredients at a time, make 4 layers in the prepared baking dish as follows: tortilla, refried bean mixture, black beans, cottage cheese, mozzarella cheese, Cheddar cheese, and salsa. Repeat layers 3 more times.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and heated through, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I used all organic products. I would use a Mexican cheese blend in the future, but they didn't have it.
