Yield

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

1 can (10 ounces) chunk white chicken in water, drained
1 can (about 14 ounces) Mexican-style stewed tomatoes, drained
1 green onion, minced
2 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup fat-free refried beans
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided
2 large or 4 small flour tortillas
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeño peppers

Preparation

  1. Preheat broiler. Combine chicken and tomatoes in medium bowl. Add green onion, 1 teaspoon cumin and garlic powder. Mix well; set aside.
  2. Mix refried beans, remaining 1 teaspoon cumin and 2 tablespoons cilantro in small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Place tortillas on baking sheet. Broil 30 seconds to 1 minute per side or until crisp but not browned. Remove from oven. Decrease oven temperature to 400°F. Spread each tortilla evenly with bean mixture. Spoon chicken mixture over beans; top with cheese. Bake 5 minutes.
  4. Reset oven temperature to broil. Broil tortillas 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese melts. Do not let tortilla edges burn. Remove from oven; top with remaining cilantro. Serve immediately. (If using large tortillas, cut each in half.)

Serving Suggestion

Serve with a green salad tossed with avocado pieces and a lemon vinaigrette.
