  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 24 ounce package Del Real Arroz Rice with Vegetables
  • 1 24 ounce package Del Real Shredded Chicken
  • 1 16-ounce container Del Real Fire Roasted Red Salsa
  • 1 16-ounce container Del Real Fire Roasted Green Salsa
  • 1 large package corn tortillas
  • 4 ounces’ cream cheese
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • 12-ounce package shredded Mexican style cheese
  • 1 ½ -2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 small bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • ½ cup Mexican crumbly white cheese

Preheat gas grill to 400 degrees F. (or cook over red hot campfire coals) In a large mixing bowl combine both salsas and 4 ounces of cream cheese. Using an immersion blender, blend well until the cheese is well incorporated and smooth. Prepare a cast iron skillet: lay two sheet of aluminum foil in a cross pattern into the cast iron skillet, pressing down into the bottom of the pan. Cut a large piece of parchment paper and lay over the foil, pressing down (parchment won’t stay in place until the chips are in the bottom). Spray both the parchment and foil with cooking spray and lay crumbled tortilla chips into the bottom of the pan. You should have a lot of excess foil and parchment hanging over the edge; this is good since we will be folding the foil over to make a package. Begin making the dish by layering corn tortillas over the crumbled chips, overlapping to ensure a good base/layer. Add ½ cup rice (Arroz) to the bottom layer, then about ¼ cup shredded cheese. Top this layer with about 1 cup creamy salsa. Top the rice and cheese layer with more corn tortillas to make the next layer. Add about ½ the bag of Del Real shredded chicken and top with more cheese and 1/4 cup creamy salsa. Once more, add corn tortillas to create the next layer. Add the remaining rice, chicken and its juices, and ¼ cup creamy salsa to this layer. Pour 1 ½ - 2 cups chicken broth over the entire surface of the dish. Broth will fill into the cracks and up to the sides of the skillet. Top the lasagna with a final layer of corn tortillas and remaining shredded cheese. Fold the foil and parchment over the ingredients to make a package/cover. If you have a cast iron lid, place lid on lasagna and bake in hot grill for 30 minutes. For best results: Preheat gas grill to 400 degrees F. Place covered dish on the main rack and lower the grill lid. DO NOT OPEN the grill for 30 minutes. If cooking over campfire coals: Ready the coals to red hot. Place a grate over the coals and cook the dish covered for 30 minutes. Remove lid to test for doneness. A Dutch oven is a great option for making this dish over a camp fire. Add hot coals to the top of the Dutch oven for even and faster cooking time. Garnish Mexican Lasagna with chopped tomatoes, chopped avocado, cilantro, a squeeze of lime and crumbled Mexican white cheese. Serve Mexican Lasagna with remaining creamy salsa and corn chips NOTES: This recipe is great when camping. It can be made several weeks ahead and frozen for easy storage and food packing. How to Freeze: Once you’ve layered your lasagnas and get them all tucked into the foil package, gently remove the package from the skillet and place in a gallon size zip baggie. Seal the baggie and freeze on a flat surface. The lasagnas will hold their shape and can be placed back into the cast iron skillet for cooking over the campfire, or on a gas grill. Just be sure to allow the pre-made/frozen lasagnas to come to room temperature before cooking to ensure 30-minute cook time. Prepare three or four lasagnas using your favorite Del Real products for a variety of pre-made campground dinners. I make recipes with beans, pork carnitas and flour tortillas as well as, a vegetarian selection for the non-meat eaters.
