Mexican Lasagna Recipe

1 pound lean ground sirloin
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 14 1/2 ounce can tomatoes, crushed
1 14 1/2 ounce can enchilada sauce, divided
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices light American cheese
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
1 egg white, beaten
6 medium flour tortillas, cut into thirds

Combine ground sirloin with first four ingredients in pan, cooking over medium heat. Drain any fat. Add tomatoes, 2/3 of the can of enchilada sauce, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine both cheeses and egg white in food processor until blended and American cheese is in pieces; set aside. In frying pan coated with no stick cooking spray, heat remaining enchilada sauce a little at a time and fry flour tortillas until all have been done. Spoon one third meat mixture into a 12 x 8 x 2 baking dish. Spoon half cheese mixture over meat. Top with half of tortillas. Repeat layers ending with meat. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
