Roasted Chicken Layered Pie


1 rotisserie chicken, breast meat
1-14 oz. can organic three beans (pinto, black, kidney)
1/2 cup medium salsa + 1 cup salsa
1/3 cup light sour cream or non-fat Greek yogurt
3 soft taco size, whole wheat flour tortillas
2/3 cup fresh spinach
1/2 cup frozen white/yellow corn
1 cup shredded colby-jack cheese
1 fresh avocado
tortilla or corn chips of your choice (optional)
non-stick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Coat the bottom of a round or square 8 inch pan with non-fat cooking spray.  Cut up chicken breast meat into bite sized pieces.  Open and drain can of three beans.  Mix together sour cream + 1/2 cup salsa, then add and stir in chicken and beans to salsa/sour cream mixture.  Begin layering the ingredients of the pie in this order from bottom to top:  1/4 cup salsa, 1 whole wheat tortilla, 1/2 of the chicken mixture, 1/4 cup corn, 1/3 cup spinach and then 1/3 cup grated cheese.  Layer again one more time the same way.  Finish the pie by topping with a tortilla, 1/4 cup salsa, 1/3 cup cheese.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Then uncover and bake for 10 additional minutes.  Garnish with sliced fresh avocado and chips, if desired.
