NGREDIENTS FOR WW CHICKEN ENCHILADA CASSEROLE
Casseroles and soups are my favorite kinds of dinner. They are comforting, warm, and full of lots of flavors. This simple WW Mexican chicken casserole is full of ingredients that are healthy and filling!
- Enchilada sauce
- Extra thin yellow corn tortillas
- Fat-free refried beans
- Taco seasoning
- Cooked boneless skinless chicken breast
- Black beans
- Diced tomatoes and green chilies
- 2% shredded cheese
This recipe calls for already cooked boneless skinless chicken breast that is chopped and ready to go.
To keep this recipe low in points it is important to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. This is a Weight Watchers chicken recipe you will make over and over again.
I will prepare my chicken breasts a couple of ways.
Start off by preheating the oven to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine the fat-free refried beans and the taco seasoning. Set aside for a few minutes.
STEP TWO: ADD TORTILLAS TO PAN
Spray a glass 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Pour about 1/3 cup of the enchilada sauce into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Spread the sauce around so it lightly covers the bottom of the baking dish. Arrange 4.5 tortillas across the bottom of the pan to cover it as evenly as possible. I cut two tortillas in half so the entire bottom of the pan is covered. There will be one 1/2 tortilla left over that you will use later. The picture below shows you how to place the corn tortilla Now spread the seasoned bean mixture evenly on top of the corn tortilla
like to grab the bowl I used to mix the refried beans…this saves some dirty bowls! Add the cooked chicken, drained black beans, drained Ro-Tel, and the remaining enchilada sauce to the bowl.
Stir these ingredients together.
STEP FIVE: LAYER FILLING
Now spoon half of this filling mixture on top of the refried bean layer.
Place the remaining 4.5 tortillas on top of the mixture.
Spoon the remaining filling mixture on top of the last layer of corn tortillas and spread it out evenly.
STEP SIX: BAKE
Place the baking dish into the preheated oven, uncovered, and bake for 30 minutes or until the casserole is cooked through and the cheese is nice and melty on top!
