Gluten-Free Mexican Lasagna

Gluten-Free Mexican Verde Lasagna

With a few ready-made ingredients, you can have this delicious Mexican Verde Lasagna on the table in under an hour!

If you’ve never had Mexican lasagna, think of it like an anything-goes casserole – you can make it with chicken, ground beef/turkey, or vegetarian; you can add tomatoes, chilies, black olives, corn, onions, and more; you can use regular or verde enchilada sauce and top it with avocado, cilantro, or sour cream. It’s easier than enchiladas because you don’t have to roll the tortillas, you simply layer them with the filling mixture. Mexican lasagna is sometimes called Mexican tortilla pie, but whatever you prefer to call it, it’s delicious!

For my Mexican Verde Lasagna, I used Hatch green chilies and green enchilada sauce. Enchilada sauce usually uses a thickener like flour, so it’s important to look for a brand, like Hatch, that is gluten-free. Aside from diced up a rotisserie chicken and cutting tortillas in half, this recipe requires very little prep work. You basically just dump some ingredients together, mix, layer, and bake! You can’t get much simpler than this for a flavorful weeknight dinner!
