I made this recipe at the fire hall and it was a big hit! It is somewhat healthier as well.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; cook and stir until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.

  • Heat oil in the hot skillet. Add tomato, bell pepper, and onion; cook and stir until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Mix in cooked chicken, water, and fajita seasoning.

  • Line the bottom of the prepared pan with 5 tortillas; pour pinto beans on top. Spread 1/2 of the chicken mixture over the beans; cover with Cheddar cheese. Layer the remaining tortillas, black beans, and chicken mixture on top. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tortillas are lightly browned and chicken juices run clear, 25 to 30 minutes. Top with green onions and cilantro.

LOVE this dish and so does the family. Very easy to make. I usually cook up the chicken early in the day and then put together an hour before dinner. Three changes I made was to use only organic spicy black bean (2 cans) La Banderita low fat high fiber tortillas (that's what I had in the house) and a red pepper instead of green. Read More

Given the ingredients I m surprised it was not more flavorful. I m not a fan of baked tomatoes so maybes add them at the end. Decent but nothing to rave about. Read More

Added chipotle peppers in with pepper & onion mix for added heat and it came out amazing! Not too hot but not bland like others said. Used extra cheese on top too. Read More
