Mexican Lasagna and our Menu Plan

Does your family love Lasagna? How about Mexican? Why not combine the two? We usually have a Mexican meal once a week, in fact most of the time I add it on Wednesdays on our Menu Plan.

So, when Collective Bias asked me to shop for and create an Ethnic Dish with some ConAgra products, it was a no brainer! The hard part was deciding which recipe I wanted to cook. My inspiration for the Mexican Lasagna came from Myra over at My Blessed Life.

I made salsa by simply combining Rotel Tomatoes with Green Chilies and Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes. Doug enjoyed eating it with chips too.

  1. I’ve one question not regarding Mexican Lasagna (it looks very tasty) but the weekly plan menu. Do You make this plan every week or it’s only for testing purposes?

    I’m new on our site maybe there’s an answer on site :).

  2. OH WOW! That sounds amazing! Thank you for sharing the recipe, will have to add it to my meal plans =)

  3. That really looks good. I have a Taste of Home Mexican Lasagna that everyone seems to enjoy as well. Have a great week!

  4. That Mexican Lasagna looks so amazing!! Seriously, I may not be able to wait until next week to add it to my menu – it will either have to bump the taco cups off the menu or maybe we can live on the wild side and have Mexican food twice in one week.
