I'd call this a mexican lasagne - so good - a really comfort meal. Followed the recipe to the letter, and was rewarded with a wonderful-tasting dinner. Just spicy enough, just cheesey enough (for our tastes), filling and very satisfying. Fortunately, this makes a lot, and leftovers were great the next day, reheated and served with a dollop of sour cream (actually, greek yoghurt in my case). A keeper.

I made this recipe for Easter and everybody loved it, even one of my daughter that does not like ground beef. Thank you for sharing that recipe that makes a different meal (a special meal).
