  Mexican Lasagna - The Questionable Homesteader

I have to confess, I am a huge fan of both Lasagna and Fijitas. So when someone suggested I try a Mexican Lasagna I was sold. Then I started looking for recipes for this thing called Mexican Lasagna, and had a hard time finding any…. the best one I found said to make taco filling, and use that instead of the meat filling for a lasagna, and replace the lasagna noodles with tortillas. 

So this is my version… don’t know it it’s correct, but it’s one of my go too’s
