    Scarlett516's Note:

    I wanted a Mexican lasagna for dinner one night so I decided to make up my own version, playing off of other recipes I've seen. The chili and the rice each taste great on their own as well as working really well together. I'm leaving out amounts for the tortillas, cheese, and cilantro. This recipe makes a lot of chili and rice. I love the leftovers for lunches, but if you want a larger lasagna, there is plenty of rice and chili for that with this recipe. The peppers are flexible as everyone has a different sense of the right amount of heat! Most of the cooking time is inactive.
