  6. Next, add your ground chicken, salt, cumin and chili powder to the onions. *Feel free to substitute taco seasoning here if you’d like.
  7. Brown the meat for about 5 minutes and then stir in one cup of taco sauce.

  9. Let the meat mixture heat up for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  10. While the mixture is heating, grab your tortillas and cut them in half.

  13. Add a layer of shredded cheese on top of the meat mixture and place a layer of halved tortillas on top of the cheese.
  14. Pour the rest of the meat mixture into the casserole dish and add another layer of cheese, then tortillas.
  15. Sprinkle some more shredded cheese on top and place the lasagna in the oven for 20 minutes.
  16. Once the cheese is melted, pull the casserole out of the oven.
  17. Garnish with tomato and green onions and you’re all set!
