Reviews for Taco Lasagna

"Has a really good taste. I did change it a bit by putting the refried beans in with the meat mixture, just much easier. Also added lettuce, tomatoes, taco sauce & sour cream on top. Will put in my keeper list."
"Great, easy dinner for the whole family to enjoy."
"Family favorite! I have made this with both beef and chicken. I also add a half of a can of corn and a half can of diced green chilies. I prefer to use organic whole grain white corn tortillas and sometimes I skip the last layer of tortilla altogether, as well as one of the cheese layers. Cutting a layer of tortillas and a third of the cheese does nothing to reduce the taste. Serve with tossed salad and corn bread. So good!"
"Made this last night & got good reviews from the family. Not spicy at all. Think I will add black olives the next time to see how that changes the flavor."
"Great recipe. You can change it up according to what you have--cooked chicken instead of hamburger, etc. Once I used hummus instead of refried beans, as I didn't have any on hand. Hummus was great too. I also put olives in the layers. Corn is good too--anything works."
