Enjoy this quick, easy and of course delicious Mexican “lasagna”. With spiced beef layered between soft tortillas, fresh peppers and cheese baked to bubbly perfection. Topped with a dollop of sour cream and green onions, you can’t go wrong.

Also, for an amazing vegetarian alternative in this recipe or ANY Mexican recipe, you can replace the ground beef with beans. (I personally like to use black beans!)
