INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 (10 oz) cans red enchilada sauce, divided
  • 9 (6 inch) yellow corn tortillas (I use Mission Extra Thin Yellow Corn Tortillas)
  • 1 (16 oz) can fat free refried beans
  • 4 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 ½ lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped into small bite-sized pieces (about ½”)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup drained and rinsed canned black beans
  • ¾ cup frozen corn kernels
  • 6 oz 50% light sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (I used Cabot)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350. Lightly mist a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Drizzle about 1/3 cup of the enchilada sauce across the bottom of the dish and spread around with the back of a spoon to lightly coat the bottom of the dish. Arrange 4 ½ of the tortillas across the bottom of the dish to cover the majority of the space (my arrangement is pictured above). Use a spatula to spread the refried beans evenly across the tortillas, forming an even layer across the whole dish. Set aside
