Mexican-Style Chicken Lasagna

I wanted to make my own variation on a casserole my friend made. This is a lasagna made from tortillas.

Ingredients: 8~10 servings

Chicken thighs
5
*Sour cream
12 ounces
*Cream cheese
8 ounces
Celery
2 stalks
Cheese
200 g
*Cumin powder
as needed
*Salt and pepper
a bit of each
Cilantro
as needed
Salsa
as needed
Tortillas
about 4~6 large ones
*Olives
1 can

Steps

1. Boil the chicken in water, then cut into small pieces.
2. Finely chop the cilantro. Chop up the celery and olives (to your desired size).
3. Put all the * ingredients, half of the cheese, and the ingredients from Step 1 and Step 2 into a bowl and mix well.
4. Preheat the oven to 150℃. While you wait, spray a 13 x 19 inch container with oil (check that the container can fit in your oven).
5. First, put a layer of tortillas in the bottom of the pan. Next, put a layer of Step 3, then another layer of tortillas, then Step 3, repeating until all the ingredients are used. Finally, top with the remaining cheese.
6. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven for 20~25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes to brown the top.
7. Pour over salsa to make it even more delicious.
