Ingredients

  • 3 thinly-sliced boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 0.75 lb. total)
  • .25 large onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde, store-bought or homemade
  • 3 8" flour tortillas
  • 2 1/4 cups Kraft Natural Three Cheese Shreds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large skillet and let it heat on the stove top over medium heat.
  • Once heated, place chicken breasts in a single layer and let cook for about 2 minutes, or until the bottom half of each chicken breast is white. Flip and let the other side cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until no pink remains from the outside. Reduce heat to low and cover skillet, letting chicken cook for 5-6 additional minutes. Chicken is done when no pink remains throughout each breast and the temperature in the thickest piece is 165 degrees F. Remove chicken to slice into chunks.
  • Place chicken in a bowl and add diced onion, black beans, and salsa verde. Stir to combine evenly.
  • Once chicken has been cut into chunks, grease a baking dish or cast iron skillet. Place one tortilla on the bottom of the dish/skillet, then add half of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle approx. 3/4 cup of Kraft Natural Three Cheese Shreds. Place another tortilla over top of the cheese and spread remaining half of the chicken mixture over top. Sprinkle approx. 3/4 cup of Kraft Natural Shreds over chicken and place the remaining tortilla. Sprinkle remaining 3/4 cup cheese over top.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and gooey. Slice into four sections and serve.

Notes

I've made tortilla pies with whole grain/whole wheat tortillas and they work great as well. Choose your preferred variety!
