It’s the pretty celadon green casserole dish in these images that inspired this recipe.
Though this isn’t typically how I create recipes, I love when it happens. Normally I select the dish, pan, plates, etc., based on what I’ve cooked or want to cook. Not the other way around.
My mother-in-law gave me this lovely baking dish over the holiday’s. Almost as soon as I unveiled it from the tissue paper in the box, I began thinking of what ingredients it was calling to be filled with.
The ingredients in my Chipotle-Potato Mexican Lasagna, of course!
This is far from a traditional lasagna. There’s nothing Italian about it, and rather than pasta, the layers are made with potatoes. It’s smoky, spicy, slightly sweet, and texture of the potatoes is amazing!
This recipe has a long ingredient and instruction list, plus notes –and I highly encourage you to go for it. The delicious flavors and the comfort this dish brings, makes it worth every minute. Just look at those layers.
And if you love cooking as much as I do, the process is as enjoyable as the finished dish.
If you loved my Smoky Chipotle Parmesan French Fries, you will truly adore this recipe, too!
