Fiesta Lasagna

I made Fiesta Lasagna for my family this weekend.  I got the recipe years ago from a friend and for some reason never made it until now.  It's a fun  and easy Tex-Mex take on lasagna. It's not spicy at all and my kids loved it. One of them picked out the avocado slices, but still liked it other than that.  Maybe your family will like it too!
1 can Ro-tel
1 can (2 1/4 oz.) sliced black olives
8 flour tortillas (8 inch) torn into pieces
3 cups cooked chicken
2 large avocados, sliced (you can dice them if you like that better)
2 cups sour cream
sprinkle chili powder
3/4 pound monterey jack cheese, shredded

Layer 1/2 of each ingredient in a greased 13"x9" pan as listed. Repeat layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. This serves 6 to 8 and you can substitute cooked ground beef for the chicken.

Happy Monday!
