Weeknight Mexican Chicken Lasagna

“A fabulously easy and delicious take on a favorite, this lasagna is full of Mexican flavors and uses layers of corn tortillas in place of noodles,” says SunnyDaysNora. “Easy to adapt and personalize — try adding sauteed veggies, Spanish rice, diced jalapeno, or even switching out the red salsa for green!”
