Mexican Chicken Lasagna...

I subscribe to Oxygen Magazine, in no way am I trying to be a body builder. hehehe Don't quite have time for that. But I do love the magazine. In last months issue they had a super yummy looking recipe, Mexican Chicken Lasagna. So I put it on the list to try, and finally did last night. Safe to say it was almost completely gone by the time dinner had finished. So hope you enjoy.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 15oz. can black beans
1 7oz can green chilies
1 15oz. can corn
1 can diced tomatoes
2 tbsp taco seasoning
cooking spray
4 whole wheat 8" tortillas
1.5 lb chicken breasts,
cooked and shredded
1 c. shredded 3 cheese blend cheese

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add oil and onion.
Cook until soft. Add beans, chiles, corn, tomatoes and
Stir to combine and cook until sauce bubbles.

3. To assemble lasagna, spray 8x8 oven safe dish with cooking spray.
Place one tortilla in dish. Top with a layer of vegetable mixture.
Add chicken and part of the cheese. Repeat until complete, ending
with a tortilla and any remaining cheese. Put in oven for 15 minutes
of until cheese is melted.

Here are a few changes I made. I used fresh tomatoes, and I drained my corn and drained and rinsed my black beans. Also I used the whole packet of taco seasoning. Oh almost forgot, I used 2 cups of cheese.
So much for ultra healthy, huh?

Our family enjoyed it. Hope yours will too.

That sounds delicious, and way better than the quesadillas I was going to make with our left over tortillas!

Thanks for posting this recipe. I subscribe to the magazine, but I threw away my copy last week. I wanted to make the recipe again tonight, but sadly, I did not have the recipe. I googled Oxygen Magazine Mexican Lasagna and there it was in your blog. Thanks!
