    We didn't really care for this. It should of been hotter when you see what kind of ingredients where in it. I won't be making this again.
    This was pretty good-nice change from regular lasagna :-)

    Yummy! I love chili, I love lasagna, and this is an incredible mix of the two! DH had 3 helpings! I love the flavors and its so easy to put together. The only change I made was that I didn't have montery jack cheese so I mixed cheddar and mozzarella that I had on hand and it was just plain delicious. Thanks for a new family favorite!

    Just by reading this recipe, I could tell it would be good. I use to make an enchilada casserole that was very similar, but called for chili-beef soup. It is hard to find that soup, so I haven't made it in a long time. This is very close to it. You can even use the pkg. enchilada sauce mix, use 2 of them and just add a little water. Very good!!

    This was a nice change form the usual lasagne. I made this during my once a month cooking blitz and baked it for almost two hours from frozen today. I used recipe#42094 for the enchilada sauce and also used 12 lasagne noodles instead of only 9~the noodles are my favourite part :) I served this with a caesar salad and we had a great meal! Thanks for posting.
