The weather is starting to cool down, school is starting soon & fall is almost upon us. With fall comes some of my favorite comfort style foods-soups and casseroles.
I like this Green Chili Chicken Lasagna because it is different from your run of the mill casserole. It’s quasi Mexican but uses chicken instead of ground beef. Corn tortillas are used instead of lasagna noodles (although you could substitute those instead) and the “cream of” soup plus the Rotel gives a different taste from the standard enchilada style sauce.
