Mexican Lasagna

I love Rachel Ray’s 30 Minute Meals so I knew we had to try this one (with just a few little changes)!  It was so simple and delicious!  The hubby loved it, so it is definitely a keeper.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love Mexican food, and might make this dish. unfortunately, I'd have to make the tortillas and the beans first. This would almost be an all-day meal!
