Corn Tortilla Chicken Lasagna
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing
Makes2 casseroles (12 servings each)
I added 3 tbsp of taco seasoning and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper to my shredded chicken and used red bell peppers instead of green. Absolutely delicious!!
Pan fried the tortillas before assembling - so it was not mushy at all. I would definitely make again, but use frozen trinity (thawed) instead of fresh green pepper to speed up the process. I used black beans instead of kidney (not sure I've ever used kidney beans in a Mexican recipe before). Tasted great and I love that the recipe is for two batches - great for meal prepping!
My family loves mexican, so this is perfect!
This was good, but it took so long to make!
My 9 yr old felt that something was missing. My husband ate the serving on his plate and then made a ham sandwich. Picture looks great, but overall disappointing.

I make lunch once a week for a group of 20 homeless people at a local church. I make the food at home and deliver/serve it. I'm always looking for new recipies for a crowd, and am so glad to have found this one. It was a huge hit. Everyone raved, including the staff. I used a mild salsa not knowing whether everyone would enjoy a more pungent one, and there was hot sauce on hand for people to season to their own taste. I followed as directed and they LOVED it. Thank you so much for this submission.
After reading through the recipe and thinking about the ingredients, I thought "AHA!" this one is a keeper because it looks so adaptable. So, I followed the recipe with some changes: someone commented that their corn tortillas got soggy so I lightly sauteed room temperature corn tortillas on each side for 7-8 seconds in moderately hot vegetable oil and then blotted them well in paper towels - the oil became a barrier to leaking through. I used black beans by Bush instead of kidney beans and fresh salsa from my grocer's deli section. All in all it's a terrific recipe - so easy follow and so easy to change to your own tastes. I am definitely making this over and over again! Thank you Susan for sharing it!!!
This casserole turned out very mushy- I won't be making it again.
