Mexican-Style Lasagna

This Mexican casserole layered with tortillas has the heft of Italian lasagna and is just as tasty.

    This recipe has become a favorite for Sunday dinner. I've added ground beef to make this even more filling. Delicious and I really like how much spinach gets packed into this dish.

      If I want to double this, how long would my cook time be? Thank you.

    This was so good! I can tell it's going to become one of our favorites. Comes together quickly, too.

    I made a New Year's version of this last night subbing in black-eyed peas and crispy, crumbled bacon. Didn't have cilantro on hand, so I used a little parsley with the spinach instead. I'll definitely try the original version at some point soon -- it's a great and easy dish!

    Made this Friday night after a very long week. Tasty and filling "one pot" meal with minimal effort and healthy and economical to boot. I used probably way more spinach than recipe called for as had a ton that needed to get used up and was delicious. Ate some of the leftovers for breakfast with an egg sunny side up. One could do it for a brunch (in a single layer perhaps) and call it : Huevos Rancheros Florentine :).

    I started out using the 8X8 disposable pan, but after laying down the first half of the recipe, I had no room left.... so if your using an 8X8, make sure it is a deep one. I switched to an 8X11.5 baking dish and had no problem from there. I thought the recipe was dry and too cheesy. However, the spinach, cilantro, scallion mix was amazing!!!

    We love this recipe! I agree that it could use more beans, and it was a little too cheesy for our tastes, so I will modify it next time I make it. I love how healthy it is with all the spinach. Very easy to make, too.

    I am a college student, and if I could afford this than basically anyone can! Really great flavors. I was worried about the quantity of the spinach since I am not a huge fan of it. But the spinach

    This was very good and very easy to make. I was a little concerned about the spinach flavor being overpowering but it's not. I used extra beans and salsa. Even out 8 year old like it.

    I saw this a few years ago on tv and had to make it right away. Love mexican-style food! Surprised more haven't tried it. It is one of my favorites. It does freeze well. I do in single-serving portions. Use soy chorizo to give it a little kick.

    Excellent flavor and easy to make. I agree with the other comments below. More beans and salsa, and sour cream on top is never a bad idea! I really liked the flavor of the spinach, cilantro, and scallion combination. This would be good to prepare a day before a party.
