This was excellent. I did make several changes b/c I didn't have everything. I just a low sodium can of corn. (I don't like green/red/yellow peppers) I didn't have any salsa, so I used a can of tomatoes with green chilies. I didn't have chive and onion cream cheese, so I used palin cream cheese and added extra onion to the ground beef. I didn't add the shredded cheese to the mixture, but sprinkled it on top of the layers. My husband prefered the noodles to soft flour tortillas. I will definately make this again. In fact, I think I will go have some left overs now!
Can't be easier than this!! Never had a lasagna with salsa and corn - and we loved it (even my dbf who is not crazy about corn!). I added a bit of tomato sauce to the salsa (as I didn't have enough salsa). Used low-fat cheddar cheese. Thanks Juenessa - this is a keeper!! :)
