Mile-high tortilla pie

This is another recipe from my parents magazine.

serves 6

prep time 15 minutes

cook time 15 minutes

1 can (19 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (11 oz) whole-kernel corn with red and green peppers, drained

1 jar (16 oz) chunky, mild salsa

1 pkg. (10 oz) fajita-style cooked chicken

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

5 (10") low-fat flour tortillas

2 cups (8 oz). shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese

Fat-free sour cream (optional)

Heat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine black beans, corn, salsa, chicken and cilantro.

Coat the bottom of the baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. Place 1 tortilla in coated pan. Top with 1 1/2 cups of the bean mixture and 1/4 of cheese. Layer 3 more times, finishing with the last tortilla.

Bake in oven 15-20 minutes, or until cheese melts and filling is hot. Serve with sour cream, if desired.
