A layered Mexican lasagna using corn tortillas in place of lasagna noodles. (Hmmmm - does that still make it a lasagna?) Looks intimidating but is very easy and worth the process!

Really fantastic one dish meal. We had it with a salad and it was completely filling. I made for the "Best of 2010" tag game. I added about a half can of refried black beans to the layering process along with a small can of sliced black olives. Sooo good!

Delicious quick recipe that I made for Spring PAC 2010. I added black beans and my kids gobbled it up! I did add a little extra cumin and peppers. Thanks!

Very tasty & easy to make. I roasted my own bell peppers and used black beans.
