This recipe was given to me from a friend's grandmother who's from Mexico. When I first tried this, I thought I died and gone to heaven with this delicious lasagna. She gave me 2 different recipes for this meal, but I'm only posting the easy recipe as the other recipe is difficult and more work. So this is a simple easy recipe to use..
