Chicken Quesadilla Casserole

Chicken Quesadilla Casserole created by natasha42

A good mexican casserole that is also decently healthy! To make it truly guilt free, grill/boil the chicken instead of sauteing, substitute light cheese (or use less), and use corn or whole wheat tortillas. The difference is truly subtle, and can have a major impact on calories!

    Made this tonight and loved it! Didn't have the cumin or oregano, but added a clove of diced garlic. My wife and I loved it! Easy to prepare.
