Main Dish: LAYERED MEXICAN CASSEROLE - Thanks Virginia~
1 serving olive oil cooking spray (5 one second sprays)
2 lbs. uncooked chicken breast, boneless and skinless
30-oz. canned black beans, rinsed and drained
3 cup fat-free sour cream
2 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese OR Mexican-style cheese blend
2 (4-oz.) cans chopped green chilies
2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. black pepper
12 medium corn tortillas, cut into 2-inch strips
1 cup salsa, mild, medium or hot

Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a lasagna pan with cooking spray.

Place chicken in medium saucepan and fill with enough cold water just to cover chicken. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes; drain. When chicken is cool enough to handle, cut into 1-in. pieces.

Transfer chicken to a large bowl and add beans, sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheese, chilies, cumin, and pepper; mix well and set aside.

Arrange half of tortillas in bottom of prepared lasagna pan, over-lapping pieces to cover surface. Top tortillas with half of chicken mixture, layer with remaining tortillas and then top with remaining chicken mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese.

Bake until filling is bubbly and cheese is melted, about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing into 12 pieces.

Serve with salsa on the side.

Serves 12 at 6 Points each
