    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.  -  14 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    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.  -  26 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
