A Mexican style lasagna. Shredded chicken, salsa and cheese are layered together for a tasty fiesta.
Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 green bell peppers, finely diced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder (optional-you may have enough spice if you use a hot salsa)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 14.5 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1 small can GF tomato sauce
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 1 whole chicken cooked, boned, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Instructions
  1. Sauté the peppers, onion, garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper in olive oil. Stir mixture often until softened, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, 1 cup salsa, tomato sauce and cilantro. Cook for 5 minutes.
  2. In large bowl combine chicken with lime juice; stir this into the tomato mixture. Spread ½ cup salsa in un-greased 13"x 9" baking dish; top with 3 corn tortillas (break in pieces to fill gaps). Top with chicken mixture; sprinkle with ½ cup cheese. Top with remaining tortillas. Spread with remaining salsa; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  3. Bake at 350°F until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Garnish with GF sour cream, jalapenos and more cilantro.
