Mexican Lasagna

This recipe is so delicious.  I love how the refried beans make the dish creamy and take the place of ricotta cheese.  The corn totillas are so much healthier for you than lasagna noodles, and it helps that you can eat 1/6th of the dish for just one serving!! Talk about a lot of food!

  • 1 Red pepper, diced
