Skinny Chicken Enchilada Casserole with Green Chile Sauce


1 cup onions, chopped

2 cups cooked chicken breasts, diced

1 cup fat free cottage cheese

½ cup fat-free sour cream or fat-free Greek plain yogurt

1 teaspoon ground cumin

½ teaspoon to 1 teaspoon chili powder (depending on how spicy
you want it)

½ teaspoon garlic powder

A little black pepper

8 (6-inch) Mission yellow corn tortillas or your favorite

1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter or Smart Balance Light,

½ cup fat-free cottage cheese

1 cup fat-free sour cream or fat-free Greek plain yogurt

1 (4-oz) can Fire Roasted Diced Green Chiles (mild), see
shopping tip

⅓ cup scallions, sliced


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9” square pan with
cooking spray. Glass or metal pan is fine.

2. In a large bowl microwave safe bowl, add onions and cook
in microwave about 1-2 minutes, until soft. Remove from
microwave and stir in chicken, cottage cheese, sour cream or
yogurt, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and pepper.

3. In another bowl, mix together the enchilada sauce
ingredients, butter, cottage cheese, sour cream or yogurt and
green chiles. Mix well.

4. Place 4 tortillas, overlapping on the bottom of pan. Top
with half the chicken mixture and spread a thin layer over
the tortillas. Spread half the enchilada sauce evenly over
the chicken. Repeat layers. The sauce should be on top.

5. Cover casserole with foil. Bake for 30 minutes, until
heated through. Remove from oven, sprinkle with scallions
evenly over the top of the casserole. Bake uncovered for an
additional 15 minutes.

6. Remove from oven and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to
set. Cut into 6 servings. Be sure to use a sharp knife to cut
through tortillas. Reheat in microwave or heat in a 350
degree oven until hot. If you want to serve it right away it
will taste great but won’t hold together into firm slices.

Makes 6 servings (each serving, 1 slice)
