Mexican Lasanga That's Weelicious! 

With just four days left until we become a family of four, time with our little guy is limited before the chaos begins. Last night, tired of eating leftovers, I decided to look for a quick and tasty recipe that everyone (even the adults) would enjoy and that could cook on its own during litte guy’s bathtime.

Here at Club MomMe, we’ve been working a lot with Catherine McCord, the fabulous author, chef and Mom behind Weelicious. Naturally, I looked no further than Catherine’s book for a new recipe to try for dinner and settled on Mexican Lasagna.

I made one subsitutions to Catherine’s Recipe (baby brain prevented me from picking up a few ingredients at the market on a busy Sunday afternoon) and used flour tortillas we had on hand at home instead of corn tortillas, but it was still divine. We’ve added this to our recipe rotation and look forward to trying a few more of Catherine’s recipes soon!
