Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 lb. tomatillos, diced (or 30 oz. can undrained)
    1 lb. onions, diced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tsp. cumin
    2 c. grated Mexican cheese (or cheddar or colby, tho even low-fat will raise calories)
    2 c. diced chicken breast (1 brest, cooked and deboned)
    1 can fat-free refried beans (15 oz)
    8 corn tortillas

Directions

In a nonstick pan, brown onions and garlic. As theyturn translucent, add tomatillos and cumin, if starting with raw. Add the mixture (and tomatillo can and cumin) to blender and liquify.

Meanwhile, in a cassarole dish, place a tortilla layer (may need to break tortillas into quarters to jigsaw into some pans), and cover with half refried beans, then 1/3 of the cheese. Lay down another layer of tortillas, and pour half tomatillo mixture onto that layer and add half of the cooked chicken (I prefer the texture of diced chicken--may blend into tomatillo mixture as alternate). Repeat with layers of tortillas, refried beans, cheese, tortillas, tomatilo chicken and tortillas. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese. Microwave for 6-8 minutes, covered, or microwave half that time and bake uncovered in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.
