Reviews for Mexican Lasagna

"I made this yesterday for a potluck birthday dinner for a friend's son and everyone loved it! There were no leftovers at all. I followed the recipe exactly and it did not turn out soupy. I also agree with others about not rating a recipe you haven't made or altering it to where you are really rating your own recipe since so many changes were made from the original one that was posted."
"My kids loved this! I loved the fact that I did not have to pre-cook the lasagna noodles. I followed the directions pretty closely and my kids really loved the beef, bean and cheese combination. As a volunteer field editor for ToH I enjoy preparing classic dishes with a twist. Trust this five star recipe!"
"Very easy and very good!"
"Made last night and we loved it. Even my son who claims he doesn't like refried beans. Very easy to make. The lasagna noodles are what gives it that out of the ordinary taste. I did use medium flavor salsa instead of mild."
"I have been making this for years but instead of lasagna noodles I use soft tortillas. More Mexican."
