After Thanksgiving Meal and some Arts & Crafts!!

So, I had to make something different after all that thanksgiving food.. so I went Mexican!!  Browned a pound of ground beef...

Added some a 1/2 cup of corn frozen or canned, then 1 cup of black beans.canned...mixed it all together, with some salt and pepper...

Then layered....add the corn/black bean/beef combo first, then took (according to the recipe off of called Rachel Rays Mexican Lasagna) halved torillas to layer, finished with the rest of the meat, then layerd again with the rest of the other halves of tortillas...

Top off with some shredded cheese, as much or as little as you like...then bake for 15/25 min in a 425 degree sure to check food network!!

Wall lahhh....dinner is served!!

Top with some scallions or green onions and add some guacamole and sour cream....maybe some hot sauce..I really enjoyed it...

.Afterwords i decided to get crafty........
