Mile High Tortilla Pie

Submitted by: SCHNOZZLES

Introduction

Lots of healthy ingredients, and "restaurant quality" to quote a friend of mine.... Lots of healthy ingredients, and "restaurant quality" to quote a friend of mine....
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 c dried black beans, soaked overnight
    3 c frozen corn
    12 oz salsa (look for low sodium)
    1/4 c chopped cilantro
    5 flour tortillas
    2 c part skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

Makes one pie that serves 8.

Prepare the black beans by soaking them overnight. Rinse the beans, then place into a pot and cover with water. Simmer for 25-30 minutes until soft.

While beans are simmering, poach chicken (pot of water, quartered onion, 2 bay leaves brought to a boil) by simmering for 20 minutes.

While chicken is poaching, chop cilantro.

Add cilantro, corn, salsa to a bowl.

Once chicken is cooked, shred it and add to the bowl. Drain the beans and add them to the bowl, as well. Stir to combine.

In a 8x8 baking pan, spray lightly with nonstick spray. Layer a tortilla in the bottom. Add 1/4 of the mixture and top with 1/2 c of mozzarella. Add a tortilla and continue laying until you place the fifth tortilla on top to end the pattern.

Bake in a 425 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve warm or hot. (Goes really well with my Spanish rice!)
