 I ♥ Mexican Food, so when I found a recipe for Mexican Lasagna I knew I had to try this. And Bonus Points – it’s low fat too (220 calories per serving)! This turned out sooo good! I will definitely be making this again. Check out the link to the original recipe I used and my tweaked version below. Happy Eating! –MJ
