Reviews forMexican Lasagna
"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!"
"My family lived it"
"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 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."
"I made the recipe as instructed although my honey thought it called for too much water I thought it was necessary to help cook the noodles. It did turn out very tasty but it was soupy. Day 2 it was perfectly reconstituted and very yummy! I'll def make it again but if I was going to present it to company I'd cut back on the water or make it a day ahead."
"Family favorite. I have made this many times just like the recipe is written. We love it!!"
"I really wish people would rate the original recipe and not how they made it!"
"Very good. It's a Mexican flavored lasagna, which I wasn't sure of but it is good......we love Mexican food."
