What's this "'Loaded" Mexican Lasagna? Loaded with what? Now I know. it's loaded with the usual Mexican taco ingredients such as beans, enchilada sauce and chili. I really love the aroma of Mexican food.

I've found that some of the recipes supplied by food manufacturers are sometimes lacking in detail. The commenter below points out some problem points with this recipe. I think I might add some of the chilies to the ground beef as it's being cooked, then use the rest in the layer of the refried beans. It looks to have some good tastes and it's easy to prepare, but the recipe instructions definitely could use some editing.

This recipe sounds like it would taste pretty good but he directions need some tweeking. What do you do with the can of green chilis? Step 4 says to spread 9 tortillas over the bottom of the casserole dish and step 5 says to use the remaining tortillas. Really? One layer of 9 and then one layer of 15 tortillas?? something is wrong.
