Mexican Lasagna "Dolly Parton" (FREEZER MEAL)

When I first started dating my husband (over a decade ago), I would frequently have dinner at his parents house with him. His mother made this dish on more than one occasion and it quickly became a favorite of mine. She calls it "Dolly Parton" because she remembers reading in a catalog years ago that Dolly Parton loves this recipe.

This makes a great freezer meal. Just line your pan with tinfoil and then saran wrap. Assemble the Mexican Lasagna like normal but instead of baking it, freeze it! To reheat, put the unwrapped frozen lasagna back into the pan you froze it in, and let thaw in the fridge. Once thawed, bake as normal.
