Mexican Lasagna

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by tucirclekelly

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.

We loved this casserole! I added a can of Rotel in place of some of the salsa, and I used about 1/2 T. of a homemade taco seasoning. The lasagna had great zip from the green chiles and spicy tomatoes and salsa, and it was heavenly with a bit of sour cream as garnish. Perfect for a crowd! Thanks Chef!
