Reviews for Tex-Mex Lasagna
"My family loved this. For those who like spicier we added sliced jalapenos as a garnish. I like this because it is a lightened up version. Corn tortillas vs flour and cottage cheese vs sour cream."
"I love this dish. Hint: I use 9 corn tortillas, putting 3 in each layer. On each layer I leave 2 whole, placing each whole one in a corner, diagonally across from the other. Then I cut one in half to cover the open spots in each layer; otherwise, there's too much open space not covered up by a tortilla. As for the cheese, I use a half and half mixture of cheddar and mozzarella. -Lori in WI."
"This was good but my husband thought it tasted like a frozen dinner from the store for some reason!"
