chicken tortilla casserole - day 5!

I had to use this dish as the last of the 5 posts because it's one of my know I can't go a whole five days without my [wannabe] Mexican food! This dish is so tasty, without all the extra calories. In fact, when you see it come out of the oven, it's hard to believe it's only 203 calories per serving!

Of course, I found this recipe on one of my favorite sites: Spark Recipes. I followed the recipe exactly, but when I make it again, I am going to use more spices and flavors like onions and garlic! 

Well, I hope you've enjoyed my 5 days of healthy dinners! I'm open to suggestions for another themed blog roll! And don't forget to leave comments or I won't know that I have followers. Your comments keep me encouraged and posting! :)
