Here’s a Mexican-inspired favorite you can whip together in just 20 minutes with just a few ingredients. It’s a winning combination of chicken, Sargento® Pepper Jack, salsa verde and red or pinto beans layered between corn tortillas.

Ingredients
  • 1-1/2 cups salsa verde (tomatillo salsa), divided
  • 2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 (15 or 16 oz.) can no salt added canned red or pinto beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1-3/4 cups (7 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese, divided
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
  • Sour cream (optional)
Directions
  1. Spread 1/2 cup salsa in an 8 or 9-inch square glass baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine chicken, remaining salsa, beans and 1 cup cheese; mix well.
  2. Arrange 3 tortillas in the dish, tearing to fit as needed. Spoon half of chicken mixture over tortillas. Repeat layering with remaining tortillas and chicken mixture. Cover dish with foil.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375°F oven 30 minutes or until heated through. Uncover; top with remaining cheese. Continue baking 5 to 10 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Top with cilantro and serve with sour cream, if desired.
