This mexican lasagna is a favorite of mine. It is such a great comfort food! My mom would make this a lot when we were growing up and I always loved it! This dish is kind of a mix of two worlds that kept everyone happy at our house. My mom LOVES Mexican food, and my dad is crazy about Italian food, this dish is their compromise. This has come to be one of Jared’s favorite dishes! Seriously, this is SO GOOD! Try it. I am sure it will become one of your family favorites!
