Recipe of the week: Mexican lasagna

Each week, Let’s RV will publish one recipe each week from the RV Centennial Cookbook authored by Evada Cooper.

The book features a collection of recipes submitted by RVers themselves. The company is providing the recipes in hopes of encouraging RVers to submit more recipes to be included in a new edition expected to be published soon.

This week’s recipe was submitted by Rich and Kitty Grenier from Mins, Fla. They have been workampers and full timing for three years and enjoying every minute. They own a 38-foot KZ Escalade fifth wheel which they pull with a 350 Ford dually. They are members of Good Sam Club.
