Layers of cheese, meat sauce and tortillas create a satisfying Mexican lasagna kids of all ages will love. The recipe makes two casseroles, so you’ll have an easy meal later, too. —Renee Starret, Benton, Louisiana

"I loved it and so did my family. The first time I made it I misread the directions and it still was good. Today I made it again and it was great and as a Pastor's wife I like to have something in the freezer to give away if someone is in need. This is a keeper!"
