Mexican-Style Lasagna Made Easy in Clay

I am a big fan of lasagna, and I really love how easy it is to make and to make delicious. Another thing that I love about lasagna is that it is really easy to customize. You can make it meat-lovers or vegetarian, chicken or beef or turkey, cheese or no cheese, add tons of veggies or have it plain with whatever cheese you prefer.

ThatÔÇÖs why I was thrilled to find a Mexican twist on this old favorite. Mexican lasagna? Genius! ItÔÇÖs like Mexican-Italian fusion, or an enchilada lasagna casserole! ItÔÇÖs delicious! And just like regular lasagna, it can be easily customized to fit your familyÔÇÖs tastes and preferences. Made in clay in slow cooking mode just makes it that much easier to prepare: you donÔÇÖt even need to be home to babysit the oven! Try this ÔÇťfusionÔÇŁ recipe for yourself and let us know what you think!
