Weight Watchers Mexican Casserole

I honestly don't remember where I picked up this recipe for Weight Watchers Mexcian Casserole. I think it might have been on one of those cards you get when you attend meetings. I'm not sure, I just know that I've made it several times, it's always a big hit and it is only 5 pts for a serving. Somewhere along the line I added a can of tomatoes to the dish because it was too dry. Well tonight I forgot to *drain the tomatoes and it became too wet. Oh well, it still tasted good, but instead of eating it with a fork, a spoon was needed!

Weight Watchers Mexican Casserole

1.5 lb bag pre-cooked chicken, faijta style strips
2 15.5oz cans of black beans, drained
3 cups of fat free sour cream
2 cups low fat mexican cheese
2 4oz cans of diced chilies (not drained)
1 can fire roasted tomatoes (*drained!)
1 tbsp cumin
2 tsp oregano
12 small corn tortillas cut in thick strips

This is SUCH an easy dinner. I call it "dump" style. Defrost chicken. Add to a big bowl. Open all cans, drain as needed and pour in the bowl. Add seasonings, including salt and pepper if desired. Add almost all the cheese, reserving some for the top. Mix chicken and all ingredients very well. Layer 1/3 of tortillas in the bottom of a casserole dish. Layer 1/2 of chicken mixture. Layer 1/3 of tortillas, and the rest of the chicken mixture. Top with the last of the tortillas and sprinkle with set aside cheese. Bake at 350ยบ for about 30 minutes. Serves 12.

Weight Watchers:
5 pts for 1/12 of casserole
