    Jim C.'s Note:

    An easy and delicious version of the classic "Mexican lasagna." For an extra flourish, alternate spinach tortillas with plain flour or multigrain ones. If you don't like spicy hot food, substitute a can of chopped green chilis for the sliced jalapeños. I like to use a hot chipotle salsa, but a mild one is fine. For a lighter version, use lowfat cheeses.

      I used brown rice, mexi corn instead of plain corn, cut out the goat cheese, forgot the cream cheese, added onion, green onion, pepper jack cheese. I didn't have a dutch over or anything to cover the casserole dish, but it still turned out well. I think next time I'll add ground beef w/ taco seasoning for some extra protein, since I have lapband and need more protein. I will make this dish again.

      This was a tough one to rate. I thought it was ok but my DH took about 3 bites and put the rest back. He couldn't stand the goat cheese. If I make it again I'll substitute an 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese for the cream cheese/goat cheese mixture. I'll also probably cut the recipe in half as this made a LOT for just the two of us. I subbed a can of green chilis for the jalapeños and used brown rice.
