I had a quesadilla recipe that I swore by until my friend made these. I would make this every day if my husband would be okay with it. The best thing is that it's a great make-ahead meal!

I really enjoyed this simple mexican dish! I did make a few modifications to suit my needs: used two packs of tyson's grilled and ready chicken and salsa instead of enchilada sauce and cream. To save some calories I only used 3 low carb tortillas and an 8 oz bag of 2% mexican cheese for the entire recipe. I also only made two layers (tortilla, chicken and cheese, tortilla, beans, tortilla on top with sauce and cheese . I also placed some salsa between the layers so nothing would dry out. Since I'm only cooking for one I used a glass 10-inch round dish to bake this in and everything fit perfectly. I'll eat the rest for leftovers this week!
