Mexican Lasagna

Mexican Lasagna
1 lb ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 envelope taco seasoning
½ cup water1 can refried beans
1 ¼ cups water
1 ¼ cups salsa (I like mild Taco Bell brand)
1 cup sour cream
1 4 oz can olives sliced
2 cups monterey jack cheese ( I like a mexican blend)
Lasagna noodles uncooked (not the no cook kind)
Brown the ground beef with the onion. Add taco seasoning and water simmer 5 min. In a baking pan, layer in the following order: noodles beef, cheese, noodles, beans, sour cream, olives, noodles, cheese, beef. Combine water and salsa and pour over the top.Thaw, bake covered for one hour, uncover and bake 10 more minutes with ½ cup reserved cheese. Let it rest for 10 minutes before cutting. I like to serve this with some fresh lettuce and tomatoes, and some spanish rice. For another flavor use corn or flour tortillas instead of the noodles, and use the salsa only, not the water
