Pampered Chef's Mexican Lasagna
Run, do not walk. Gather up all the ingredients for this recipe and make it tonight. Seriously.
A friend of mine made it for our family and I have since made it three more times. We love it and it is so EASY!
I especially like to make it when I have a rotisserie chicken or leftover chicken from another dish and I am looking for ways to “doctor” it up. This recipe comes in handy for those moments. It doesn't call for anything fancy, and even better, since everything is already cooked, after you assemble the casserole, you just throw it in the microwave to heat it up.
Perfect for those nights when you don't have much time to whip something up and the kids are clamoring for dinner!
Note: Everything in bold below refers to specific products offered by Pampered Chef. I improvised using whatever I had on hand. For example, I used a 13x9 casserole dish for this recipe.
