enchilada lasagna. la-thon-ya.

spinach dip lasagna?
la-thon-ya. that's how you say it. mexican deliciousness?
what matthew, mark, luke, and john eat in heaven?
i don't know. the title options here are endless.

now when i say it's gluten free, some of you who aren't GF are like, oh gross...i love gluten, i'm not making this shiz. but listen, i love gluten too. and regardless, this recipe is so delicious. you must try it. and you probs already have everything in your pantry.

Photobucket so ingredients...

tortilla chips (pronounced torti┼╝a like the spaniards do)
2 cups of salsa
1 can of black beans
1 block of cream cheese(i uses the less fat kind)
1tsp salt
garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup fat free greek yogurt (or ranch dressing if you want a fattier option)
handful or more of spinach, chopped
2 cooked chicken breasts, cubed and salted. ( i like to boil my chicken for casseroles. the chicken is so moist this way)
salt n' pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1 cup cheddar cheese

what you do:
mix cream cheese, garlic, salt, chili powder, greek yogurt in a bowl. throw in a handful of spinach while you're at it.

place 1/2 a cup (or more) salsa at the bottom of 8X13 glass pan.
then place the chips on top. i try and smash the chips down a little if they are sticking up too much.
throw in a drained, rinsed can of black beans on top of this.

then half of the chicken you cubed

then 1/2 cup of salsa spooned over the top evenly
then chips
then the cream cheese mixture. all of it!
then chicken
then chips
Photobucket then remaining salsa over everything.

then sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top

really you can do whatever order you want and you can throw more ingredients in here. just remember that the bottom and top need salsa.

bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

this was soooooooo tasty. gluten free or not, i would eat this everyday if i could. ok, or pizza. but this is a close second.

and because it was so good, i didn't even take a picture of the end result. bad blogger? it's me!


  1. So admire the way you are embracing this gluten-free thing. Looks good. :)

  2. Oh, Yum!!! I am taking dinner to a family on Wednesday. Change of plans, now I'm taking this instead of what I had planned on. Thanks, Jami!

  3. you write how i speak. yous funny, lady.

  4. yummy in my tummy!
    can't wait to try it.

  5. HA, matthew, mark...HA, HA!!
    my husband follows who I follow by proxy well because I talk to him about bloggers like he should know them. You are 'the sheez one that is REALLY FUNNY'. I think you are the only one that he actually laughs along with me when I read him parts of your postings..ha, ha.

    anyways, la-thon-ya, ha, ha...
    looks amazing. i would add a little more cheese though...just saying;)

  6. Reeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaallllyyyy??? ooook, I'll trust you! XO

  7. mmmmm. thanks for the dinner idea tonight. we are mostly gluten free over here so this is perfect.

  8. Yum. Looks delish, sorta like a gigantic nacho! Mmmm

  9. This is making my tunny rumble right now--I need this in my life.

  10. @jocelyn, it is a great one to take to someone. the leftovers are even better!

  11. ok. just made this. two words...amazingly addictive, as in, i ate waaaaay too much because it was so good. will make again, but not when i'm trying to lose weight! LOL!

  12. I agree @ Mara !! It's seriously better the next day. So insanely delicious. Unless you ate it all tonight...ha!

  13. This looks delicious!! I might have to give it a try!

  14. Jami, we had this for dinner tonight, everybody loved it, even the little girl who seems to only likes crackers right now. Thanks for a great recipe!

  15. Jami, we had this for dinner tonight, everybody loved it, even the little girl who seems to only likes crackers right now. Thanks for a great recipe!

  16. Jami, everybody loved this at our house tonight, thank you!

  17. Hey Jami! Just wanted to let you know I started a gluten free diet this week and we made this for dinner!! It was seriously SO good. Thanks for the recipe.

    Next up...bean brownies :)

  18. I just made this and it's in the oven cooking right now. It's the kind of meal that is right up my alley.. can't wait to see how it comes out. It smells amazing! I added in some cilantro too, cause I'm addicted to it and all.

  19. So this was nasty. I love every ingredient that goes into this dish, but when it got paired all together it just turned into a big pile of slop and was just overpowered by salsa. Ugh, I ended up throwing more than half of it away, which sucked because it was a lot of stuff that went into this dish

  20. Oh man! I every other person said they liked it....I'm so sorry. That's really strange. I've made it several times and it's been fantastic. :(

  21. making this tonight.. the first of your recipes that i've made. i know for shizzle there will be more because i've pinned about every recipe that you've posted.
    another confession: i have started your blog and am reading it post by post, going backwards. i'm a stalker like whoa. i just love y'all's story.. the way you tell it and thank God even for the hard things.. and i LITERALLY peed my pants the other night after reading a post. the one about your dad riding the boy down the stairs- how you said he was probably blind bc your dad's junk was in his face. my husband was just looking at me from across the room while i laugh/cried/peed my way to the bathroom. i hope this makes you feel good about what you've got going on here and not really uncomfortable. ha! anywho.. love it.
