Southwestern Chicken Lasagna

Recipe from: AllRecipes.com

Spaghetti sauce in the mix gives a nod to the Italian origins of this layered casserole, in which chicken in a spicy tomato sauce alternates with tortillas and cheese."


3 cups chopped, cooked
chicken breast meat
2 tablespoons butter
2 large onions
1 teaspoon fresh chopped
jalapeno peppers
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano 2 cups spaghetti sauce
2 cups tomato sauce
1/2 cup fresh salsa
16 ounces shredded
mozzarella cheese
16 ounces shredded Cheddar
15 (6 inch) corn tortillas


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a large skillet, brown shredded chicken in butter or margarine. Add onions, jalapeno peppers, garlic, basil and oregano. Then add the spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce and salsa/picante sauce. Stir all together. Cover skillet and simmer for 10 minutes over low heat.

3. In a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish, place a layer of tortillas, then a layer of the chicken/sauce mixture, then a layer of mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers twice, then top casserole with Cheddar cheese and bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour, until cheese is bubbly.
