Cooking spray
1 cup thinly sliced onion
5 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 (7 3/4-ounce) can salsa de chile fresco (such as El Pato)
15 (6-inch) corn tortillas, cut into 1-inch strips
1 cup shredded queso blanco (about 4 ounces)


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Now add the onion and sauté for about 5 minutes until lightly browned. Then add the garlic and sauté for another minute. Mix in the chicken and cook it for 30 seconds. Move the mixture to a medium bowl and stir in the beans. Mix the broth and salsa in a pan and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer it for about 5 minutes.
Put half of the tortilla strips in the bottom of a baking dish coated with cooking spray. Layer in half of the chicken mixture over the tortillas. Now put the remaining tortillas and chicken mixture in. Next, pour the broth mixture evenly over the chicken mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 450° until the tortillas are lightly browned and cheese is melted.
