110% worth the effort and everyone LOVED it! I made a few minor changes to this.. none of us like refried beans so I substituted black beans in their place. Used 2pks of taco seasoning. Added fresh button mushrooms and doubled the cheese. FAVORITE meal forever! Thank you

Too much water. Lasagna needs to be cooked. I substituted taco sauce for the water.

My family LOVES this dish. I make it vegetarian by swapping out the ground beef with Lightlife Mexican Crumbles. I also like that comes together so quickly.

I have so many recipes it's crazy! I see something that looks delicious or cute and I save it. I'm so happy I'm not the only one who does this! Maybe it's an obsession, but it's a delicious obsession!

Precook the noodles, use less water and add about another pound of meat for a 9?13. Either that or use a 9x9. Better the next day! :)

I precooked the noodles and used less water and more salsa. Also added a bit of enchilada sauce over noodles, since I added less water. Family devoured it and wants it again!

I followed it as written except used the ready-to-bake noodles and I completed steps 1 and 2 the day before, refrigerated it overnight, and added the water/salsa before baking the next day. A great and easy potluck recipe!

i made this for a weeknight dinner and it is quite good. I followed the recipe except: used 24 ounces of salsa with 1 cup of water and did not top with the sour cream but served it on the side. I used noncook noodles and the baked finish was perfectly cooked. I would use less beef next time and maybe layer in some of the salsa mixture over the meat to moisten and flavor.
