Mexican Lasagna

Submitted by: IANBEYER

Introduction

a chicken chile enchilada casserole. a chicken chile enchilada casserole.
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    4 tbsp canola oil
    1 onion, chopped
    6 cloves garlic
    1 red pepper, chopped
    16 oz chopped green chiles
    3 cans (12.5oz ea.) canned chicken
    3/4 cup flour
    6 cups chicken broth

    20ish corn tortillas (6")
    3-4 cups shredded mexican blend cheese

Directions

heat the oil in a large skillet (this makes a bunch!) and saute the onions, garlic, pepper, and chiles. Drain the canned chicken, reserve the liquid and add to the vegetables. Saute for about 5 minutes and add the flour. When everything is evenly coated, add the liquid from the canned chicken and the chicken broth. Let the whole mixture simmer for a while and thicken.

While you do this, preheat the oven to 350F and brown the tortillas in a nonstick pan.

Layer the ingredients like you would a lasagna - start with a thin layer of sauce at the bottom, add the tortillas and a layer of cheese, and repeat.

While this recipe makes 12 hearty servings, I made the full batch of sauce and only assembled half of it for dinner and froze the rest of the sauce for use later. My kids loved it!
