Our April Goal

Well this month Morg and I decided that this month we would not eat out one time!! I know some might think that is an easy thing. We on the other hand eat out all of the time. Mainly because of long days and not wanting to cook anything and the other is school schedule. And another big reason for this challenge is that it costs so much money!! We are trying to be able to live on less. So I am going to have to think of new and exciting things. Tonight I made something new and thought I would share. It was very cheap and so so easy!! I would like to call it Mexican Lasagna
This meal could easily serve 4 but could serve 6. (pending on serving size)
You will need... (Mind you I do not measure anything so just add as you would like)
9 x9 inch square pan
1-2 chicken breasts (Pending on what you want)
1 bag of shredded Mexican mix cheese (Monterrey jack and Colby)
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 bottle of your favorite salsa
1/2 cup of sour cream (Again pending on what you like)
I cut all of my tortillas into strips. (Another easy tip is I buy the big bag of chicken breast from Costco and bake them chop them up and split into portions and freeze them again. Then I can just defrost and add to anything I need them for.) Mix soup, salsa and sour cream together and use as your sauce. Layer that in Pan. Add a layer of tortilla strips. Then another layer of sauce, chicken and then cheese. (I do not spare on the cheese) Then repeat and top with tortilla strips and sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 375 for one hour. At the end add a little more cheese on top and bake until cheese on top is melted. Garnish with olives, sour cream, tomatoes (Anything you would like.) I served with some rice. (My hubby loves rice!)
Super Super Easy and actually really good. Let is stand for almost 5-10 minutes so the sauce can set and it is thick when you serve it.
