Mexican Chicken Lasagna

I will start by saying this is really not a lasagna at all. When I think of lasagna, I think of layers of noodles, covered in cheese and sauce.

This Mexican lasagna is layered, and is covered in cheese and sauce, but they are totally different kinds of layers than lasagna because this uses tortillas.

There are many versions of Mexican lasagna, but most of them contain ground beef and a red enchilada sauce. I like this version because it contains chicken and uses a green enchilada sauce instead of the basic red one.

You all have been asking for more chicken recipes, so I hope you enjoy this one.

  1. Yum!! I will definitely have to try this soon, it combines ingredients my family loves and can have!

  2. I love a this dish!! We don’t use cream cheese in ours, but our recipe is quite similar. The chicken and tortillas make it wonderful.

  3. We might have to try this version! We love our mexican lasagna, but trying new things is always good. 🙂 Ours has ground beef, mexican cheese, chopped green chilies, refried beans, taco seasoning (Alton Brown’s), a little bit of tomato sauce, and flour tortillas.

  4. That looks yummy! I might have to add it to the menu next week. I have never had green enchilada sauce before. Is it super spicy? I wonder if salsa or picante sauce would work just as well.

  5. Anything with cream cheese in it sounds wonderful. We would love this and it would be so great for a big get together. People always love Mexican food. Thanks for sharing at Tasty Tuesdays.

  6. I love anything MEXICAN so this looks great.

    Here’s my recipe: http://ordinaryinspirations.blogspot.com/2011/03/rice-crispy-easter-eggs-to-make-with.html

  8. This has quickly became a family favorite in our house. My kids love it!!

    Tried it this week and loved it! So easy, so tasty and so different from most Mexican dishes. It is definitely going in the recipe rotation. So glad I have a go to dish to use up the shredded chicken that comes with roasting a whole chicken. Thanks for sharing!
