"Amazing dish, loved it!"
"This is great. I used no boil lasagna. You can add whatever extras you enjoy. It was a little like eating seven layer dip, lots of different flavors. Everyone liked it and finished it off. Our guests ate a lot and the kids all had seconds, not even complaining they saw some sour cream. My rating comes from if my husband and kids like it. I am finding the best recipes ever in this site for my picky family."
"Made this last night and really liked it. The only adjustments I made was using low sodium taco seasoning because I know how salty that can be. Good thing because it would've been overly salty. I sprinkled on a scant cup of the crushed chips and found that it does give it a nice corn aroma since I used flour tortillas. Overall it was very easy to put together. It does go well with chopped fresh tomatoes ."
"Very good and I will definitely make it again. The only comment I will make is that the 2 cups of water (mixed with the salsa and poured over the top before baking) seemed excessive as the finished product was rather soupy. I will cut it down to 1 cup of water when I make this recipe again."
"Loved that I didn't have to cook the noodles first. I used pork instead of beef to decrease the cost."
