This is delicious!!! I did add extra cheese (I love cheese!) I added chopped roma tomatoes, sliced black olives and sour cream to the top when serving. I think I will add chopped green onions the next time. Love this and my husband loved it!! I'm glad to see that it warms up good! Will definitely make again.
Very good!! I served it with sour cream and that's tops it off to great! I changed the original recipe: ground turkey breast, canned diced tomatoes, canned green chiles, added Mexicorn, used La tortilla Factory tortillas, FF refried beans and 16 ounces (vs12) cheese. I baked @375º for 30 minutes covered, then uncovered and baked for another 30 minutes. The top got nice and crispy. So good and would serve 12.
This was pretty good but not a favorite as far as "Mexican" lasagnas go. My family likes the other one I make better.
My mom made this for us and it was delicious, good as leftovers the next day also. She used red beans instead of black beans and she also served it with sour cream. I loved the refried beans in there. This is definitely a keeper!
I am not a bean lover but this was really really good. I went a little lighter on the refried beans and it was awesome! And I used salsa instead of diced tomatoes. Love it!
