Reviews forTaco Lasagna
"Excellent recipe! easy enough for kids to help."
"Excellent recipe! The second time we made it before serving we topped it with a generous amount of chopped lettuce & diced tomatoes the topped with some sour cream. Have made several times always a big hit."
"Great recipe! The first time I made it, I followed the recipe. Excellent. Made it again, but added an additional taco seasoning packet and a can of corn (and upped the cheese to 4 cups). Even better. Used two 8-inch round pans, and had enough left over to make a handful of burritos. A definite winner!"
"I’ve tried a few recipes, this one is the best! The retried beans made it! I didn’t change a thing."
"This recipe is great with either flour or corn tortillas and in my own opinion is even better topped with fresh chopped lettuce and tomatoes."
"I made this exactly as posted several times and just loved it! I've started having to watch my cholesterol intake since then so made these changes. I used ground turkey and multi-grain tortillas along with lo-fat cheese and sour cream. Having picked up refried black beans by mistake, I went ahead and dumped it in. I swear, it tasted just as good as the original recipe. I love when that happens!"
"I tried this last night and was impressed! This recipe is a keeper! I omitted the refried beans because my daughter absolutely hates them, and left out the green pepper cuz I'm not a fan. Also substituted corn tortillas for regular tortillas because my husband is severely allergic to gluten, but did the rest as described and we loved it!!! Will definitely make this again!!!"
"This recipe is great. I prepared it as written. I was amazed at how easy the whole dish went together. I couldn't find Mexican tomatoes so I used diced tomatoes with green chilies. My Grandson and his friends were having a gathering and they ALL loved it. I did use more cheese, like 3 - 8oz. packages. Next time, and there will be a next time, I think I will cut the tortillas in strips, as 1 reviewer did, as it was a bit difficult cutting portions."
"Try it with chili beans and use their sauce."
