Mexican Lasagna

    This was very delicious and tasted truly authentic. The corn tortillas give this dish more of an "enchilada" taste so use white tortillas if you want to avoid that flavor. I used hot enchilada sauce which gave it just enough zip. I may add chopped fresh jalapeno on top next time. I loved this so much I talked my mom into trying it this weekend. I will definitely make this again as it feels like a great dish to eat year round.

    This is a good everyday meal. Doesn't take alot of work or time to make. The store was out of regular enchilada sauce, so I bought the mild green chile enchilada sauce and I thought it was really good. I would make it again.

    This is easier to make than traditional enchiladas and very, very good. My husband and teenage son loved it! A real keeper.

    I made this for my husband & father-in-law and we all LOVED it! This is a new FAV of ours! I've already recommended it to others. We will be making this one again and again! I only used about 1/3 of the sauce (I was worried it would be too spicy for my father-in-law). However, it turned out just right for us! I served it w/sour cream & chips. Totally recommend!

    Easy to make and came out just fine. Tastes alot like beef enchiladas, which my husband and I aren't crazy about. We agreed that although it tasted fine, wasn't special. Probably won't make again.

    This was sent to me from a friend and it was so delicious. My husband and I used HOT turkey sausage and regular pinto beans and it turned out great! We also substitued Fat free soup and cheese to cut down on some of the calories. We loved it and are definitely going to add it to our monthly recipe rotation. This would be a great dish for a Fiesta! If you like Mexican food you will LOVE this dish!

    Made this for our monthly poker party and it was a hit. Everyone went back for more. Will definitely be a repeat often.

    I prepared everything and it's in my fridge, waiting to be baked. I did add a few ingredients to this recipe. I made the beef mixture this way: I used 2lbs of ground beef, one can of black beans, one can of corn, 1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce, green chiles, diced tomatoes with jalapenos (found it that way). Seasonings: taco seasoning, chili powder, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder...it was delicious!! I made the sauce according to the recipe..and used mexican blend shredded cheese...the sauce with the beef mixture was amazing!! thank you so much for the recipe..i cant wait to try it after its baked! I will be serving mexican rice on the side.

    This dish is wonderful. Use the green enchilada sauce instead of the red and as a girl from Texas who knows, it is spot on Tex-Mex. After reading the ingredients, I wondered if it would be just "another casserole dish" but this one goes way beyond. I read and research recipes as a hobby and it just doesn't get much better than this! An absolute must have in my repertoire of repeatable recipes.

    My boyfriend and I made this the other day and it was delicious. We only used ground beef for the meat and added taco seasoning, garlic salt and worcestershire. Instead of enchilada sauce, we used green taco sauce. We also used flour tortillas instead of corn and refried beans instead of whole beans. It came out GREAT. Make sure to add the fresh veggies on top before baking. I also recommend sour cream, salsa and fresh chopped iceberg on the side after baking. I'm actually making this again tonight :) Leftovers still taste pretty great after re-heating, and I highly recommend!

    Outstanding recipe! I used soy crumbles for a vegetarian main dish and subbed a can of plain pinto beans and a can of chopped jalapenos instead of ranch-style. Saved calories and fat with 98% fat free soups and served with CL Green Rice. Delicious!

    This was easy and delicious. I have made other Mexican lasagna recipes but this is by far the most flavorful. I did substitute Southwestern 3-Bean mix for the pinto beans, only because that's what was in my pantry. I would highly recommend this recipe!

    So good! I wanted user to use some ground beef I had but was sick of the normal go-to meals. We're not big fans of traditional enchilada sauce so we used green chili sauce, as another reviewer recommended and it was fantastic. I also added sauteed onions to the ground beef. My 6 yo, and 2yo loved it too! This will definitely be added to the rotation.

    The about half surprised us with how good it is. My son found and made the dish in triplicate so he could take dinner to relatives and they called and raved also. He did substitute black beans for the pinto and made more sauce than called for. He also left out the cilantro because he hates it and avocado. Even with the modifications I am sure this will join his repertoire and be added to our frequent line up.
