Mission Foods is kicking off the summer with a fabulous contest called the Mission Menus Challenge. Beginning June 28, 2010, chef Sara Moulton is encouraging all home cooks to submit a budget-friendly recipe using Mission Tortillas. Winners will compete in a cook-off in Los Angeles for the grand prize – a $10,000 dream kitchen makeover. There are also great weekly prizes available for participants. You can submit recipes until August 9, 2010 and the grand prize winner will win round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations for two to the Mission Menus Challenge Cook-off on September 10, 2010 at the Hard Rock Café in Los Angeles. Recipes must include mission flour tortillas, be original, and feed a family of 5 for less than $10!
I was sent a package of Mission tortillas to try and prepared an easy and cheap dinner with them that I wanted to share with you all. I decided to make Mexican lasagna and created my own recipe – here it is:
1 lb. ground turkey breast (could sub other ground meat)
2 cans refried beans (I used fat free)
1 can enchilada sauce
pickled jalapenos (if you like it spicy)
shredded cheddar cheese (I used a Mexican blend)
1 can of corn
1 packet taco seasoning (I used low sodium)
Mission flour tortillas
Coat the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with enough enchilada sauce to cover.
Brown ground turkey. Add taco seasoning and remaining enchilada sauce. Stir and add corn, jalapenos (if desired), and refried beans and cook together until heated through.
Layer tortillas on top of enchilada sauce coating and then layer meat mixture and cheese on top. Repeat and end with cheese layer on top.
bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
You can find other budget-friendly meals using Mission tortillas for under $10 for the whole family!
