This recipe is so wonderful I had to share with everyone! Spicy and delicious - it's like a Mexican Lasagna! Makes a lot of servings and would be great for those Cinco de Mayo parties! From allrecipes.com and Kathi McClaren.

This is really yummy! I cut the recipe in half. I used ground turkey instead of beef. Also, instead of the colby cheese, I used the mexican style shredded cheddar cheese. I used a round 2.5QT casserole dish, and the tortillas fit in there perfectly. It is kind of like a mexican lasagna casserole. It is spicy and has kick, but not too hot. Really yummy! Even when the recipe is cut in half, it still makes a lot.
