Honey Lime Mexican Lasagna

Honey Lime Mexican Lasagna

The best Mexican lasagna recipe

If you have yet to try honey lime chicken you are missing out. This delicious chicken combo uses chili powder and honey to coat your chicken before using it in whatever Mexican recipes you would like!

The other night my mom made this chicken mixture for a taco bar we were having and asked if I wanted to take home the leftover meat to make the enchiladas I normally make using this chicken. I grabbed the bag of chicken and headed home but then a few days later as I was making dinner I realized that I wanted to try creating a new recipe with this chicken.

So I began to layer like a lasagna and bake it! It is just as yummy as the enchiladas since it has the same type of ingredients but just in lasagna form!
