1 Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring, for a few min, then add 1 tablespoon water and cook for 5 min or until the onion is soft and translucent and the water has evaporated.
2 Increase the heat to high. Add the mince to the pan and cook until it’s nicely browned, breaking up any lumps with the back of a wooden spoon. Add the carrots, capsicum, kidney beans, tomatoes and spices, stirring well to combine. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10–15 min or until the sauce has thickened.
3 Heat the oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5 and lightly spray a 25cm round baking dish with oil. Put 1 tortilla on the base of the dish, then spoon over some of the meat mixture. Continue layering up the remaining tortillas and meat mixture, finishing the stack with a tortilla. Spread the yoghurt over the top tortilla, then sprinkle evenly with the cheese. Bake the lasagne for 30–40 min or until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Cut into wedges and serve.

That was delicious! Holy moley. I mean seriously. Yummy. I had to use chipotle in adobo sauce instead of flakes but blimey it was tasty.
Very nice. Makes a big quantity of meat and veg, so it needs a large pan to cook it in. Looks great. I had to substitute regular chilli flakes, and would add more next time as it was very mild. I also had to add in another can of tomatoes for more liquid while the meat mix was cooking. Looked pretty much like the picture!
