Mexican Lasagna

I was so excited to have a Mexican Lasagna recipe using things I have already made. I make salsa verde on a regular basis as well as crockpot carnitas aka shredded pork. I combine them to make tacos, but with this Mexican Lasagna I have a whole other use for both. This Tex-Mex recipe is so delicious!
