    I love this! I made this by accident one night many years ago when I was desperate for a quick meal. It became a family favorite. I used corn tortillas and it was delicious! I sure am enjoying perusing this site, Kimberly. You’ve really done a lot of work on it!

    What is Taco Sauce? Is that something homemade or store bought? Thanks!

    Taco sauce is sold in a can in the grocery store. The next time I make this I plan to try adding homemade taco seasoning to tomato sauce.

    Hello. First of all, thank you for all the wonderful information! For the Mexican Lasagna, should you cook the raw flour tortillas before layering? (store bought) Imelda

    All the flour tortillas that I’ve seen in a grocery store have been fully cooked and there is no need to do anything before layering them in this recipe.
