Mexican "lasagna"

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Meredith .F

I originally found this recipe on the conatiner of Knudsen's Cottage Cheese & have been making it for years. My husband really likes it & he normally doesn't like cottage cheese. This is the original recipe, but I sometimes substitute ground turkey, lowfat cottage cheese & whole wheat tortillas....depending on the diet frame of mind:)!

Six thumbs up at our house! It is very flavourful and the tortillas (I used flour tortilla) puffed up so nicely and were very tender. I used medium salsa which worked fine for us but if you like hot this would be a bit tame. I added in a can of black beans as another reviewer suggested and glad that I did. I also used closer to 2 cups of sharp cheddar and I don't think it was too much. Just a few minor adjustments and it was great. I will def. be making this again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
