I cut the amount of water in half (I thought it might end up mushy) and it worked out really well. Sometimes I add corn kernals to the mean/bean mixture. I recommened using ready-to-bake lasagna noodles. My family loves this meal! Even my 5 year old ate her whole plate! Still tastes great heated up for lunch the next day. REMEMBER TO CUT THE WATER FROM 2 CUPS TO 1 :)

This is exactly like our family recipe, and it is a hit every time, with everyone who's ever had it. My favorite thing about it is that it is SO simple. You don't have to brown beef, or cook noodles ahead of time - just put it together and pop it in the oven! I always make it exactly like instructed. One tip to make it even simpler - instead of measuring out or buying the spices, just add a packet of taco seasoning mix.

We loved this recipe! It was an instant hit. I did make the suggested changes, used 1 cup of water and added cheese at each level. My husband hates olives, so we added black beans instead and it tasted great! We also added HOT taco seasoning to the beef and pre-cooked the beef because we like spicy recipes. It was wonderful!
