Create this amazing dinner the whole family will crave!Oh MAN do I love a good food challenge. I mean, I’m pretty much addicted to several Food Network shows, Chopped being one of my absolute favorites. I’ve seen some episodes where it’s professional cooks who are competing, and others with amateur home cooks. I love them all!It’s always so suspenseful to have them open up those baskets and find out those mystery ingredients. If you haven’t caught the show yet, the basic premise is that three people are creating dishes to compete against one another in front of food critics who will judge their dish. The catch is that, in each round, they are given a basket of ingredients and they have to incorporate all the ingredients into their dish. Some combinations I can see, others are just WACKO! At least once an episode I learn about an ingredient I’d never heard of before. It’s really interesting!I was recently given a Chopped at Home challenge with a “basket” of ingredients to incorporate in my recipe. SO FUN! My list of ingredients were… drumroll…chicken thighs corn tortillas poblano peppers Sargento® 4 Cheese Mexican BlendOk, ok – I know. They totally went easy on me!! I honestly had at least 5 different recipe ideas with those amazing ingredients. After discussing with my resident food critic (AKA my husband) we both decided I should go for the Cheesy Mexican Lasagna.Friends, this is a dinner that you MUST try! I know my photography skills have come a long way since I began this blog adventure 5 years ago, but even these cheesy photos aren’t doing this lasagna justice – trust me on this one!

Tag @MostlyHomemadeMom on Instagram and hashtag it #MostlyHomemadeMom Slices of this amazing lasagna turned out so pretty plated, too! I served this with leftover grilled vegetables, but some Mexican rice and a side salad would go great too if you are expecting a crowd. If you’re freezing, end with the cheese topping and cover. Thaw completely before heating according to baking directions above, but leave the foil on so that the cheese on top doesn’t get too well done.
