Smothered Mexican Lasagna
I loved this basic recipe idea. I changed it quite a bit though. Without alterations, this recipe lacks the 'kick' I look to Mexican food for. I took the advise of many previous reviews. First, I mixed salsa with refried beans and sread it over the tortilla as the bottom layer. here you add quite a lot of flavor and can vary it in spicyness depending on the salsa heat level you use. Second, I used two lbs of ground turkey, I like more meat. Third, I added chilli powder, paprika, amd cumin to the ricotta cheese. Lastly I added a mexican blend shredded cheese as the last layer in each section and on the top of the final product. Topped it with a dollop of sour cream, more salsa, and chopped avacado. One more great thing about this recipe... it was better as a leftover. I recommend making it the day before and heating up individual pieces in the microwave. Serve over a bed of lettuce and dress with whatever you like on top (other suggestions to try: jalapenoes, black bean and corn mix, or enchilada sauce)

Petite Blanquette de Poulet a l'Estragon (Tarragon Chicken)
2 stars is generous for this recipe. It lacked the wow factor that would make me want to take the time involved with this recipe to cook it again. I cooked it exactly as the recipe read exept I only used chicken breasts. While we ate it, all in the family thought it was bland, and dry without tons of the sauce poured over top. I even went the exrea mile to make creme frache as recommended in the video. Sorry, not my favorite. Maybe iI will check back to see what other suggestions people make.
