My whole family loves this beefy lasagna flavored with taco seasoning. Even my picky five-year-old will eat it. Serve with shredded lettuce, fresh sliced tomatoes, olives and sour cream.

Delicious and easy! Here are my changes. 1. Grease the pan with cooking spray. 2. Spread refried beans on 1st layer of tortillas. 3. Used chopped fresh tomatoes rather than canned. 4. Added an extra layer...tortillas/beans& beef, cheese & salsa, tortillas, beef, tortillas, taco sauce and cheese. Really good with some sour cream and/or hot sauce on the side! Read More

Good and easy recipe. Although I received no complaints from any family member not sure if I'll make again because there are a few other recipes that are similar on this site that I prefer over this one. However if your looking for an easy mexican dish it will satisfy. Read More

Yum Yum Yummmmmmmmy. This was easy to make and delicious. I did lightly coat the pan to keep things from sticking. I put refried beans on top of the first layer of tortillas. In the meat, I added onions and some garlic powder. I used more like 2 cups of cheese but I also added more layers. My layers went like this: Tortilla, refried beans, beef mixture, cheese, tortilla, beef mixture, cheese, tortilla, salsa and a lil more cheese. My mom and grandma tried it at lunch today and loved it as well. I served it with sour cream. The only thing I would do different next time is use 1 1/2 lb of hamburger. I think with the extra layer I needed a bit more. Read More

Great for leftovers & freezing. You can alter this however you want - I often add black beans and green chiles, and use flour tortillas instead of corn. Like others suggested, putting a layer of "filling" on the bottom of the pan prevents sticking, dried out tortillas. Read More

Huge hit! This dish reminded us of an enchilada recipe we both love. I used other reviewers' suggestions and browned the meat with some minced onion and garlic. I also put sour cream between the salsa and the cheese layers. Make sure to carefully oil your pan because the bottom tortillas won't come off otherwise. Read More

My husband loved this recipe. I used flour tortillas and thought they would be hard but they were good. I also added sour cream and refried beans plus an extra layer to make it more like lasagna. So yummy!!! Will be making on a weekly basis. Read More

This is really good. I used more meat than 1 pound added sliced black olives and a can of refried beans to the meat mixture and used 2 cups of cheese (1/2 cup are you kidding?). Topped it with sour cream and shredded lettuce at the table. Read More

In Mexico this is actually called "Pastel Azteca" intead of lasagna. I usually use crumbled tortilla chips instead of whole corn tortillas. I also use two types of cheese together: mozzarella and an orange cheese such as cheddar or mimolette, putting a layer of sour cream sprinkled with paprika and chili powders just under the cheese before baking. As a side dish I make a mexican style rice: chopped onions, red & green peppers sautéed together, add rice, then a broth to cover the rice, add red or pinto beans and some corn, and allow to simmer till the rice is tender. Great together. Read More

Wow- great recipe. This one beats all the other noodle varieties on this website. This is by far the best. I suggest using cooking spray and adding cheese to the meat layer under the 2nd layer of tortillas in addition to the cheese on top. I used a 2 cup bag of that Kraft Mexican shredded blend. Other than that I made it just as described. Great! Read More

This was yummy, quick, and very versatile. I added some black beans and a can of mexican corn to the ground beef mixture, and then added some Monterey Jack cheese to the Cheddar, and put another layer of cheese in the middle. Thanks! Read More
