This is SOOO good! And I am proud to say I made it up all by myself! Though another recipe gave me the idea it didn't have a lot of the ingredients I added.
** Note- this recipe isn't "stiff" like most "Italian Lasagnas" so don't be disappointed if it's a little "runnier" that you expected. If you wish, you can use less of the soup mixture! **
1 lb LEAN ground beef (16 points)
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (9 points)
1 packet of Taco Seasoning (I prefer Old El Paso) (0 points)
1 can of Chili Beans (OR 1 can of Fat Free Refried Beans OR 1 can of Pinto beans with 1 tsp of chili powder and 1/2 tsp garlic added) (6 points)
8 Fat Free Burrito size Flour Tortillas or 10 Fat Free Soft Taco size Flour Tortillas (16 points)
1 can of Campbells Cheddar Cheese Soup (8 points)
1/2 cup Fat Free Sour Cream (2 points)
1/2 cup Old El Paso Smooth Taco Sauce OR 1 cup of any "chunky style" salsa (1 point)
1 cup Fat Free shredded cheese (I used 1/2 cup FF mozzerella and 1/2 cup FF cheddar) (4 points)
Cook meat (beef or chicken) according to the package instructions on the Taco Seasoning packet.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Pour beans into a saucepan, smash with a potato masher or blend in food processor until smooth Heat over med heat. Refried beans are usually already smashed- so if you use them don't worry about mashing them up!
Mix together cheese soup (undiluted), sour cream, and salsa until well blended.
Cut burrito wraps into quarters, if using Soft Taco wraps- cut into halves.
Line a large casserole dish with a single layer of tortilla wraps. Top with 1/2 cup of cheese soup mixture. Add 1 layer of beans topped with 1 layer of meat. Repeat to make 3 or 4 layers- until all ingredients are used. Top final layer with 1 cup of shredded cheese. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes until heated through and cheese is melted- most Fat Free cheeses get "chewy" if left in the oven too long, so keep an eye on it!

Now, when I made this last night I made a small casserole dish for myself and used only beans- no meat. It was very good! 12 points for the whole "mini" casserole dish (measurements 6.94" L x 5.36" W x 2.36" H by corningware)
I imagine you could also add corn, tomatoes, mexican rice, etc as layers- use your imagination! Just be sure to count the extra points!
**If the casserole is too "soupy" for your liking, use less of the soup mixture**
