1/2 red onion, sliced
1/2 green or red pepper, cut into strips
1 jalapeno pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp cumin
1 teapsoon oregano
1 14.5-ounce can Mexican style tomatoes (reserve 1/4 cup)
1 1/2 cups shredded cooked white-meat chicken
2 6-inch corn tortillas
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded Jack cheese
1 Prehat oven to 350 degrees. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Sauté onion, pepper strips and jalapeno for 3-4 minutes.
2 Sprinkle cumin, oregano and stir well. Add tomatoes, except 1/4 cup, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add shredded chicken and cook for 2 minutes.
3 Spray a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place one tortilla on the bottom.
