Black Bean and Chicken Chilaquiles

Cooking spray

  • 1 cup thinly sliced onion

  • 5 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast

  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 (7 3/4-ounce) can salsa de chile fresco (such as El Pato)

  • 15 (6-inch) corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch strips

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • Preparation

    1. Preheat oven to 450°.
    2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add chicken; cook 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl; stir in beans. Add broth and salsa to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
    3. Place half of tortilla strips in bottom of an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer half of chicken mixture over tortillas; top with remaining tortillas and chicken mixture. Pour broth mixture evenly over chicken mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until tortillas are lightly browned and cheese is melted.
    This was DELICIOUS!!!  As I have said before, our kids do not eat "food" so they did not eat this BUT Todd and I ate it and even ate the leftovers!!  We NEVER eat leftovers!!  ;))
