I have been making Rachael Ray’s Mexican Lasagna for a number of years now. It’s so simple to make and great when you want to prepare a meal in advance if you are entertaining. I switched it up a bit and put my personal spin on it. This lasagna is one of my favorites!
I am one of those people that loves comfort food all year long. I eat soup and ice cream in the winter and I eat hot casseroles in the summer. I could eat this dish all year long! With all of the snow and freezing temperatures we’ve been having here in New Jersey, I have been overdoing it a
little lot with the comfort foods, so I decided to make this one a little healthier. But to be honest, I didn’t change it that much, it’s a really great recipe Rachael!
