1 spray(s) olive oil cooking spray
2 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast
30 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained
3 cup(s) fat-free sour cream
2 cup(s) shredded reduced-fat Mexican-style cheese, divided
8 oz chopped green chilies,
two 4-oz cans
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
12 medium corn tortilla(s), cut into 2-inch strips
1 cup(s) salsa, mild, medium or hot
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a lasagna pan with cooking spray.
Place chicken in medium saucepan and fill with enough cold water just to cover chicken. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes; drain. When chicken is cool enough to handle, cut into 1-inch pieces.
Transfer chicken to a large bowl and add beans, sour cream, 1 cup of shredded cheese, chilies, cumin, and pepper; mix well and set aside.
Arrange half of tortillas in bottom of prepared lasagna pan, overlapping pieces to cover surface. Top tortillas with half of chicken mixture, layer with remaining tortillas and then top with remaining chicken mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cup of cheese.
Bake until filling is bubbly and cheese is melted, about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing into 12 pieces. Serve with salsa on the side.

An old saying goes, “If you’ve got your health, you’ve got everything.” I believe there to be a great deal of wisdom in those words. Good health is our most valuable personal asset and is worth more than all the material possessions the world has to offer.
Think about it – even rich people fear death and there isn’t one of them who wouldn’t trade every penny of their fortunes to be spared from a terminal illness. Even if one’s life itself isn’t threatened, poor health can steal away many of life’s greatest joys – holding a baby, watching a son or daughter graduate high school, going for a walk on the beach.
It’s little wonder when Washington begins talking about health care reform, the whole country sits up and takes notice. The country usually doesn’t like what it hears. America’s recent overtly negative reaction to the administration’s health care reform proposal is similar to, though much more intense than, the Clinton (that’s both Bill and Hillary) health care reform proposals of the early 1990s.
In fact, it appears likely that, at least with regard to the House of Representatives, the election cycle of 2010 will resemble that of 1994 when American voters turned out in huge numbers to cast out Democrats bent on supporting the Clinton's terribly flawed plan.
The reason why American’s rejected both health care reform plans isn’t because of fear as the liberal national media would have us believe but because they don’t trust the government to be in control of personal health care decisions – and well they shouldn’t. [Full story »]
