Uncle Will’s Mexican Lasagna

Makes 6 servings


1 cup sour cream
1 cup guacamole
2 bags Sargento Artisan Blend “Authentic Mexican” Cheese*
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
pinch of Kosher salt
12 small flour tortillas
hard taco shells
24 ounces Pace Picante Salsa**


Kitchen Tools Used: Silicone Oven Mitt with Magnet. I LOVE these mitts for retrieving hot dishes from the oven. They are indispensable in the kitchen! Need one? Buy it here at my Amazon store.

1.       Dice the chicken breasts into small pieces and sauté with a touch of olive oil, the minced garlic and the cayenne pepper until it is just cooked through. Don’t be shy with the cayenne powder! Add more if you would like it spicier.

2.       Rub the lasagna pan with a thin layer of oil. Line the lasagna pan with 6 soft tortillas. Spread the entire cup of sour cream over this layer of tortillas. Spread half of the chicken over the sour cream-covered tortillas. Cover the chicken with half of the salsa and 2/3 a bag of cheese. Cover this layer with the hard tortilla shells, broken in half length wise. Cover this layer with all of the guacamole and the remainder of the chicken.*** Cover this layer with the rest of the salsa and all but ½ a bag of cheese. Cover the final layer with 6 soft tortillas and spread the remainder of the cheese on the top.

3. Bake the pan at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and crispy.

Naptime Notes

Naptime Recipe Serving ideas

*Do not substitute another cheese, this blend really adds a lot of flavor!

**Use whatever level of spiciness you’d like, I like medium. The Pace brand really has a flavor I like, try it!

***Try adding rice at this point…or beans…I am not a fan of the frijoles so that’s why I left them out of this recipe.

Musical Pairing: The album “Del Este de Los Angeles” by Los Lobos, available on iTunes! This has great renditions of traditional songs.
