Green Chili Lasagna

If you have already had enchiladas this week, then you need have the perfect excuse to make these green chili lasagna. The tastes are exactly what you'll recognize, and the pasta makes such a nice difference. 

The photos did not turn out pretty, there was nothing I could do to make this look any less sloppy, but trust me, it was so delicious. 


4 cups cooked chicken, shredded or cubed
2 cups salsa verde
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
2 cups Mexican cheese blend
3/4 cup sour cream
10 oz. no-boil lasagna noodles
1 (15 oz.) container crema
1 (10 oz.) can roasted green chiles
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder


1. Preheat oven to 375ยบ F.

2. Combine chicken, green chiles, 1 cup salsa verde and sour cream in a large bowl and season generously with salt and pepper, cumin and chili powder.

3. Spread 1/3 cup chicken mixture in the bottom of a large baking dish and cover with a layer of lasagna noodles.

4. Top with another layer of chicken mixture, then cover with crema, mozzarella and Mexican cheese.

5. Repeat with another layer of chicken, crema and cheese, then top with lasagna noodles.

6. Cover noodles with remaining salsa verde and crema, then sprinkle remaining mozzarella evenly over the top.

7. Cover dish with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 10-15, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

8. Remove from oven and serve hot.
