    Missy Merrill's Note:

    This is a recipe that I originally found in "Taste of Home" magazine in 2000. I have changed it a little to fit my families tastes. I have also entered my version in the NC Turkey Cooking Contest this year........Wouldn't it be great if I won?? :-)

      Missy, this dish was outstanding for our Cinco de Mayo cookathon. We really did enjoy this dish! I used chicken for this dish. The only adjustments I made (personal tastes) was to use 1 Tbsp. cilantro, and 2 cans green chiles. The taste and flavor was wonderful. Thanks for posting, Missy. It will be used again and again.

      The Best! Love this recipe. I prefer to use more chicken (5-6 cups). Miss Annie's suggestions sound good, so I'll try those next time. This lasagna is perfectly marvalous.

      My family and I loved this recipe. I used left-over turkey from our Thanksgiving dinner. I followed your directions exactly and we all felt like the seasonings were in perfect proportion. I highly recommend this for using left-over turkey. Delicious! Thanks Missy.
