Ingredients

6 flour tortillas (or your favorite GF tortillas if you want to keep GF)

2 c. shredded colby jack/mozzarella cheese

2 grilled chicken breasts - cubed 

1 c. chopped baby spinach

1 can black beans - rinsed and drained

nonstick cooking spray

optional - salsa, more cheese and sour cream for topping

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Spray an 8 or 9 inch square baking dish (affil.) with nonstick cooking spray. 

Cut tortillas in half. Lay 4 pieces in the bottom of the baking dish so that the flat edges align with each side of the dish and the entire bottom of dish is covered. Spread thin even layers of each ingredient in the following order: cheese, chicken, spinach, beans, more cheese. Lay down another layer of tortillas and repeat the rest of the layers. Put a final layer of tortillas on top and cover with cheese. 

Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
