Nigella's Mexican Lasagne

When I first saw this recipe for Mexican Lasagne in Nigella Kitchen I flipped passed thinking 'no I wouldn't cook that'. As soon as I think that a part of me says 'just cook it'! And when I saw Nigella cook on the television show Nigella Kitchen I was sold.

It consists of making a salsa from basically capsicum, onion, tomatoes, coriander stalks/roots and chilli. After cooking this you layer the salsa with tortilla's and a bean/corn/cheese mix. It is then baked.
I'm not sure why the concept did not really appeal to me on first inspection as actually it was really tasty. The tortilla's hold up well in the recipe, I used wholemeal ones. It actually has a very mexican flavour, and it is really quite attractive to look at once sliced. Overall I was really happy and would cook this again.


  1. YUM! I have seen similar recipes but never tired them myself! Perhaps I could try to make it with GF wraps?!

  2. I haven't made this one yet, but it did catch my eye when I looked through the book. Nigella is just great!

  3. Wow! This looks interesting...I bet it was delicious! Yum! :)

  4. That sounds like such a perfect treat for a lazy Friday or Saturday evening in!

  5. That looks so yummy!! I may have to try that too :)

  6. Lovely lasagna! Nigella"s recipe is always superb!
