    These Mexican Lasagna Rolls are a mix between traditional Italian lasagna and tacos. Ricotta cheese blended with sharp cheddar and ground beef are rolled into each lasagna noodle.

    They are smothered in enchilada sauce and baked to perfection. Before serving, top with diced avocado, tomato, scallions, sour cream and a dusting of chile powder!

    Most people aren’t aware that Mexican food really came into America during the 50’s to the 70’s. Tacos were the first Mexican dish to be introduced in the 20th century.

    Since most of the immigrants were from central Mexico, that’s where corn tortillas were primarily used. The corn tortillas were stuffed with a variety of fillings which was then folded and is what we know as a taco today.

    This Mexican Lasagna Rolls recipe is so easy to prepare you can even let the kids help in the kitchen. After the meat is browned and cooled, let them spread on the ricotta and roll up their dinner.

    After cooking, they can dress their own Lasagna Rolls with desired toppings.

    I like making enchilada sauce at home, taking only 10 minutes, so I can adjust the heat, but you can certainly buy a mild store brand. If you are a fan of spicy, you can also add pepper jack cheese and hot sauce to your ricotta blend.

    I have also used a spicy ground pork and chorizo instead of ground beef.
