Good recipie, easy to prepare but not as spicy as we would have liked. I substituted diced tomatoes for the tomato sauce and will do so again. Next time I'd follow others' advice and substitute taco sauce for the water, add a small can of green chilies, and a small, finely chopped onion. I may also use refried beans over each layer of noodles before layering the other ingredients. Following others' advice, I baked the lasagne in a 350 deg oven for 40 min, covered in aluminum foil to prevent it from drying out.

this recipe went over well with my party guests. i added a few things like salsa and ricotta mixed w egg. i also put crushed chips in each layer with a mixure of cheddar and taco cheese. it turned out great. i will make this again and again. i give you 4 stars.

Great recipe! I did reduce the tom sauce to 1 15oz can, added a large 17oz jar of med. salsa and left out the water. With the extra salsa and the hot taco mix, it added great zip. Also added some taco shredded cheese into it. Hint-taco chips don't reheat well. Left them off and added fresh ones each time we had it.

This is so good! My husband says this is his new favorite! I followed the recipe exactly, except I baked it in the oven on 350 for 30 minutes covered with foil. I just think microwaving something like this dish would come out soggy. I recommend the oven.

Easy to make - You definitely want to BAKE this recipe at 350 for 30 minutes, and don't leave out the crunched up taco shells! They're cheap, and really made the dish have some 'pop' besides cheesy taco meat. Remember you should have 3 layers (I only had two, oops) and also you might want to layer multiple noodles on top of each other, I had a lot left over and it was too late to go back and add them because I had already added my sauce and cheese.)

This was a great recipe. I did 4 noodles in each layer. Used spegghetti sauce along with the taco seasoning. I did not measure the cheese, so I just did a pound of it grated. Instead of chips, I use a box of tacos crushed. I cooked it at 350 in the oven for 40 minutes.

I made this tonight because I had some left over lasagna noodles cooked that I didn't know what to do with. We browned 1lb of hamburger and added a 28oz can of crushed tomatoes with 2 packets of taco seasoning. I put some olive oil on the bottom of my glass pan (9x13) so the noodles wouldn't stick and layered noodles, warm refried beans (made it easier to spread) cheese, meat and tomatoe mixture then more lasagna noodles. It made about 3 layers. We put it in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 then added a layer of cheese then broiled for 3-5 minutes. Added crunched up tortilla chips, diced up mixed baby green salad and sour cream with home made jalepenos on the side... BEYOND AMAZING!!! We have decided that Taco Night is now Taco Lasagna Night!
