Mexican Chicken Lasagna

Submitted by: AKA_MARGO

Introduction

I found this recipe on Eat Better America, but after making it I thought it needed some beans. I added no fat refried beans, but you could also add black beans. This also can be made with precooked chicken. I found this recipe on Eat Better America, but after making it I thought it needed some beans.

  • Very good! it was "mushy" but I don't think you can get around that with tortillas. It was very tasty though! will make it again... - 12/15/09

  • Became very mushy but it tasted good. I ended up putting it inside of uncooked corn tortillas and added jalapenos on top when I served it. Maybe I made it wrong. - 3/22/09
