Easy Cheesy Mexican Lasagna

"This one is yummy and simple, and super fast too! My 2 year old calls it "nummy cheesy!" I consider it to be a home for any style of ingredients if you want chicken or green sauce or a different cheese it would still be fantastic. Enjoy!"

  1. I love the flavor of the stewed tomatoes in this! I had only one issue with the recipe as written, and that is that I did not have room for all the layers in my 9 inch pan. I ended up not using quite all the filling and skipping the top tortilla/cheese layer. Also, if I would have made the recipe as written, I count only 12 tortillas used rather than 16, but that's a very minor point. This was really quite good, and I'll keep this recipe to make again - but next time I will make the whole filling, then freeze half for use later, as this was a ton of food for my family. Made for PAC Spring '11.


I'm a new wife and mother who cooks seven days a week. I'm always on the lookout for new recipes and inexpensive meals. Alot of the things I cook are a little "experamental" but most of them taste alright after a few tries, everyone's got to learn sometime right?
