Love, love, love this recipe. I used corn tortillas, added a con of refried beans & just 1 jalapeno. Sets up beautifully. It's become a family favorite.

We really enjoyed this Mexican Lasagna. I didn't have paprika or jalapenos, but it still turned out great. Thanks Jennifer for an excellent recipe!
