Found a pretty yummy recipe that Kelsey & I are going to making soon! Thought I would share it with you all.
Chicken (but we will probably use Beef) Enchilada Lasagna:
3-4 Tablespoons Olive Oil
2 small zucchinis, diced
8 whole green onions, sliced
1 medium green pepper, diced
1/2 cup black olives, sliced
4 cups fresh baby spinach, chopped/shredded
2 teaspoons cumin
salt and pepper, to taste
3-4 cups cooked rotisserie chicken (or any other leftover chicken)
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and draine
1 (16 oz) jar of your favorite salsa (I used mild so it wouldn't be too hot for my kids)
1 bunch of fresh chopped cilantro (optional)
4 cups mild green enchilada sauce (I used two jars of my favorite brand)
16 whole corn tortillas, cut into strips 2 cups grated cheese (I used Monterrey Jack, but cheddar is good too! Just use what you have)Toppings: sour cream, tomatoes, avocados, etc.
Directions:In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add zucchini, onions and green peppers and saute until they start to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in olives, spinach,cumin, salt and pepper until spinach starts to wilt. Once spinach is all wilted, remove the skillet from the heat and stir in chicken, beans, salsa and cilantro (if using). This is the filling for the lasagna. Set aside.
Spray a 9x13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce across the bottom of the dish and place 1 layer of corn tortilla strips over top. Sprinkle some cheese over the top. Spread half of the chicken and veggie filling over the tortillas and cheese. Top with more cheese, more tortilla strips and 1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce. Continue layering the lasagna with more cheese, the last 1/2 of the filling, more cheese, the remaining tortilla strips, 2 cups of enchilada sauce and the last bit of cheese.
Cover the baking dish and bake at 350 F for 30-45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes before cutting and serving. Top with avocados, sour cream, avocados, tomatoes,cilantro, etc.
