1/1 Photo of Mexican Lasagna
Chef #368305's Note:
This has been a hit for everyone I've made it for. I think it was originally from a magazine, but I lost the paper recipe years ago and have been making it my own way ever since. I lightened it up a bit with light cheese and lean beef, but you could use the regular stuff.
