Mexican Lasagna

May 28, 2013

I'm having the most relaxing evening tonight!

Daniel is gone to Toronto for meetings so its just Maddox and I home this week. I find after a long day with Maddox the last thing I usually want to do is spend hours int he kitchen making supper. Especially when it's just him and I and I have to occupy him while trying to cook and do dishes" I made this casserole a couple days ago and we have been eating off it for suppers. Sooo handy, and its also pretty light with the tortilla shells instead of pasta!

As you can see I cut the recipe in half and used my round casserole dish. It worked perfectly for this dish. The small tortillas were the perfect size.

Cheers! Happy Tuesday :)
