Southwestern Chicken Lasagna

2 c. shredded chicken breast - cooked
1 1/2 tbs. chili powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 garlic cloves minces or pressed
2 cups favorite salsa
1 pk. shredded mexican cheese
1 tbs. lime juice
1 tsp. salt
1 sm. onion - chopped
1 tbs. veg. oil
2 c. can chili w/ beans
pkg. flour tortillas

Combine first 5 ingredients let stand 5 min. set aside.
Saute onion and garlic in hot oil in a lg skillet over med heat until tender 3 -4 min.
add salsa, chili beans, optional - green ortega chilies reduce heat and simmer
Line the bottom of an 11 X 7 baking dish with 3 flour tortillas, layer with 1/2 of the chili, 1/2 the chicken
mix. 1/3 of cheese. Repeat layers, top with remaining tortillas. Sprinkle with remaining cheese on the top. Bake @ 350 degrees for 25 -30 min. let stand 5 min before serving.

note: warm tortillas on a grill before layer. I cook the chicken breast, just by boiling them. You can use deli cooked chicken chunks too.
