  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9x13-inch (22 x 33 cm) baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Drain any excess fat.
  3. Stir in the taco seasoning and ½ cup ( Pace® Picante Sauce until well combined, then bring to a simmer over medium heat. Remove the pan from the heat.)
  4. In a medium bowl, stir together the ricotta, ½ cup (55 G) shredded Mexican cheese, and ¼ cup crema.
  5. To assemble the lasagna, spread 1½ cups (225 G) of the seasoned beef in the baking dish, then dollop ¾ cup (180 G) of the ricotta mixture and ½ cup (120 G) of the refried beans on top. Cover with a third of the tortilla chips, pressing down gently to nestle the chips into the filling. Drizzle the chips with ½ cup (168 g) Pace® Picante Sauce, and 1 cup (100 G) Mexican cheese. Repeat to make 2 more layers, using 1 cup (336 G) Pace® Picante Sauce and 1½ cups (150 G) Mexican cheese for the final layer of each.
  6. Bake for 20–24 minutes, or until the layers have melted together and the cheese on top is browned.
  7. Drizzle the lasagna with the Pace® Chunky Salsa, remaining 2 tablespoons crema, the jalapeño slices, and chopped cilantro.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. Enjoy!
