Fiesta Lasgna

This has been a crazy week. Elections, voting, & I had to pull some over time..ugh. I love this recipe. It is one of those "I have no time and I need to pull something together that is healthy and yummy for dinner fast!" This is a recipe I love to make on those busy weeknights. It is super fast if you already have some pre-cooked chicken breasts hanging out in the fridge that need to be used.

Fiesta Lasgna

1& 1/2 TBS of olive oil
1 can of black beans drained and  rinsed
2 tsp of dried cilantro
1 tsp of cumin powder
3 large cooked chicken breasts chopped
1 TBS of lime juice
1 small onion chopped
1 sweet bell pepper chopped
salt & pepper to taste
1/3 cup of salsa
1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
6 gluten free corn tortillas ( check the label to make sure its gluten free)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8x8 glass baking dish with 1/2 TBS of olive oil. Heat 1 TBS of olive in a large skillet. Saute onion and red peppers for 3 minutes until soft. In a large mixing bowl mix together beans, cilantro, cumin, chicken, lime juice, onion, red pepper, salt, black pepper, and salsa. Place three tortillas on bottom of dish then spread half of chicken mixture on top. Then top with 3 remaining tortillas. Then sprinkle shredded cheese on top layer. Cover with foil and bake until hot and bubbly. Serves 4-6.
