This sounds yummy...I've been wanting to make lasagna but am kinda bored with the traditional way of making it. This is a great way to spice things up, but I'm not a fan of corn so I'm thinking of adding a colorful mix of bell peppers would be nice!

Omigosh...typo, I'm thinking, adding a colorful mix of bell peppers would be nice. Sheesh

I have never tried lasagna made this way and I am not sure if I would like it or not, since it seems like Mexican and Italian mixed. But, I think it looks good and I like everything that is used in it, so I will probably try it at some point.

I make red lasagna, white lasagna, veggie lasagna, and now I can add chili lasagna to my recipes! I use the no preboil needed lasagna noodles all the time, and they're good and makes making lasagna even easier. The easier it is, the more often we can enjoy it!

I made this following the recipe, then again substituting nacho flavored chips for the pasta, both were DELICIOUS! Thanks

I think you could use flour tortillas.... I also use flour tortillas when I make chicken and dumplings. They are made with flour, shortening and water just like the homemade dumplings so why not? Saves time and make you look good in the process.

I made this and it was a hit.... Didn't need to change a thing. I will definately make it again...the Mr food kitchen is genius!!!!

Looks really good. I wonder how it would work with flour tortillas instead of lasagne noodles.

I am going to try this

sounds great will have to try it soon

We love this!

This is delicious !! Didn't use the entire 2 cans of chili though. Be sure to drain the lasagna noodles well. I was in a hurry & didn't, so mine turned out a little too juicy. Don't omit the green onions .. they MAKE the recipe.

i made this dish tonight and it was fabulous! i did add some garlic salt and garlic powder to it and i like beans so i used the chili with beans..very good!
