How to Make Mexican Chicken Lasagna Salad (no pasta)


  1. Preheat oven to 375^. Spray 9x13-inch baking dish with non stick olive oil.Set aside.
    Char poblanos over an open flame until blackened, 5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl, cover with plastic, and steam 10 minutes.Then peel skins from poblanos, discard stems and seeds and coarsely chop.(skip this if using from a jar like me)
  2. Char tortillas over an open flame, turning once, about 15 seconds on each side, and place under a cloth towel to steam and soften.Chop poblanos coarsely from jar now, if using like me.
  3. Place 2 Tablespoon of the olive oil in a medium sauté pan over medium-high heat. When oil shimmers, add the onion and cook until it becomes translucent, about 3 minute. Add garlic, 1 teaspoon of the salt, oregano, and chipotles to pan and cook, 30 seconds. Add pureed tomatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly, 6 minutes.
  4. Spread 1 cup of tomato sauce mixture in the bottom of the prepared pan. Layer 5 of the tortillas over sauce and cover them with 1/2 the remaining sauce, 1/2 the pablanos, 1/2 the cream, 1/2 the chicken, and 1/2 the cheese.
    Repeat with a second layer in same order.
  5. Cover dish with foil and bake 30 minutes.
    Uncover and bake until bubbly and golden brown on top about 15 more minutes.
  6. In a large bowl, combine radishes, lettuce, vinegar and remaining salt. Toss to combine and serve on top of each lasagna serving.

    This is SO GOOD!
