Chicken Non-Polenta Bake

Tonight I cleaned the house and taught Body Step. It was a big class which is always so much fun! I think everyone got an awesome work out (based on the red faces :)). Afterwards I cooked up this delicious dinner:

A while ago, I made this Chicken Polenta bake. I enjoyed it but I'm not the biggest polenta fan. Tonight I decided to make the bake minus the polenta :). I layered two tortillas in the bottom of my bake dish (which is a great way to avoid spraying the dish and its edible/delicious :). On top of the tortilla I put a layer of refried beans (fat free). Next I mixed in a separate bowl:

15 ounce can black beans (drained)
15 ounce can corn (drained)
15 ounce can peas (drained)
2 chopped up pre-cooked chicken breast (I cooked them in boiling water earlier)
2 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning
1/3 container of salsa

I placed this mix on top of the refried beans and then topped everything with low fat mexican mix cheese. Baked for 30 minutes at 350. I served mine with organic tortilla chips mmm.

Loveofoats- Good call! I didn't even think of that! It'd be a nice healthy dish thats also tasty!

Miz-Refried beans are a love em/hate em food. Maybe make the bake without?

Using tortillas as a substitute for non-stick spray is pure genius! This recipe looks awesome and I know it would go over well - I'm going to try it soon!

Peas? That's an interesting ingredient in there and a good way to sneak another veggie in. I'll have to try!
