A great-tasting, family-friendly mexican lazagna! This dish started in 1988, my Junior year of high school when I was asked to prepare a dish for a potluck in Spanish class. It's evolved over the years into this very-yummy, quite spicy, everybody's-gotta-have-seconds casserole... ENJOY!

I made this for a chuch potluck today. I am only giving it four stars because of a error in the recipie and because I wasn't going shopping at 7am on a Sunday morning I didn't think it turned out as good as it could. The ingredient list dosen't list cream cheese and I didn't have any on hand. Everybody liked the flavors and said it was good but I think the cream cheese would have made a difference. I used El Charro Cafe Green Enchilada Sauce #55478 for the sauce on this.
