Healthy Mexican Lasagna with Video

I saw this recipe a several weeks ago and it looked really yummy, but as usual I wanted to do my own spin on it and make it healthy.  I had a ton of tomatoes from my garden to use up and I thought it would be a perfect recipe to use them up!  The recipe below will make two dinners.

Healthy Mexican Lasagna


  • 2 cups fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 or 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 4 scallions coarsely, chopped
  • sea salt and ground pepper
  • grass fed butter
  • 2 pounds of ground beef
  • Sprouted whole wheat or corn tortillas
  • 2 cups homemade salsa or finely chopped tomatoes
  • 2 cups of shredded raw cheddar cheese


  1. To cook heat oven to 350 and bake for 30 minutes


Check out the video (remember I am still getting the hang of this video thing! I totally forgot that shooting in vertical mode is a no-no, whoops!) for directions on assembly.

Hope you like it!

  1. Looks delicious! I try to steer away from tacos, despite how freaking yummy they are, b/c the flour tortillas out there are so full of crap! Did you get these corn torts at NLM? What about your raw cheddar? And, a question about your glass-that’s all I use is glass, never aluminum, even when baking anything… however, all of my glassware have stains that I cannot get out! I have soaked, used BKF, BS and V… do yours stain/burn? It’s only around the edges usually at the top of the pain, but it just isn’t pretty. Thanks!

    • Yes, I get both the tortillas and cheddar at New Leaf! Don’t have any tips about glass stains, my dishes are ok, but I do have a pyrex pie dish that has stains, so I would love to know too, if anyone else has any ideas. BTW, have you gotten the last couple of my Facebook messages? You never responded!

  2. I love your blog and everything you write about as it’s been super beneficial to my family…but I just have to ask – what’s with some of the ads for processed, fake food? I totally respect all the ad’s you have going on as it’s your job, but you represent “real food” and you have ads for Country Crock margarine and popsicle brand pops. I bought popsicle brand once this summer and noticed they had aspartame and food dye (amoung other crappy things). Why do you allow those type of food ad’s? Do you buy those items for your family? I also noticed Hormel, and that is definetly a processed meat, the opposite of what you support.

    • Good question! I have a little response in my policies page, if you click under on the About icon and the drop down menu will come up. But basically, I hate those ads. I did everything I could to filter out the ads, and it’s impossible to get them all the food ones off. For the last six months I tried very hard to get independent advertisers so I could get away from the ad network ads, but I haven’t been successful. And those ads up there now, pay for my family to eat real food, so for now they stay. As soon as I am making enough from my cookbook sales, they will come down. Thanks for being supportive regardless of the country crock ads!

  3. Hi Stephanie,

    This looks so good! I am very interested to try it.
    I also totally agree regarding using glass but just wondering would the glass crack or break in the freezer when the lid is on?
    Or do you have any recommendations on preventing this from happening?



    • If you use a good, thick glass, like Pyrex, you shouldn’t have any trouble with. I have been using this same glass pan for years and have never had a problem. Mason jars on the other hand are a thinner glass and have been known to break when in the freezer, so that is why I always use plastic bags for my stock. And as long as you are putting plastic in the freezer and not heating with it, no chemicals leach out. I like using these glass pans because I put them in the oven as well. :)

  4. I am making this tonight…where/when do you use the scallions? I didn’t see that in the video. Thanks!

  5. A friend of mine told me about your website and I am in love! Just a quick question, how do you make your green salsa? Thx!
