A note about serious food allergies

Crispy tortillas and feathered cheese makes this Mexican Lasagna a delicious, spicier alternative to the classic Italian-style lasagna. We replace pasta with crispy baked tortillas accompanied by fresh chopped vegetables and zesty ground beef. Finished with an authentic Mexican crema for a tangy finish, and sliced radish for a crispy crunch.
