Ingredients :

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 (6″) corn tortillas
  • 1 (14 oz) can reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano, crushed
  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • (14 to 16 oz total)
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Romaine lettuce
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs (optional)
  • 1/3 cup light dairy sour cream (optional)
  • Lime wedges (optional)

Préparation :

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat both sides of tortillas with nonstick cooking spray.
  • 2. Place on baking sheets. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Tortillas will crisp up as they cool.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet combine broth, chili powder, cumin and oregano.
    Bring to a boil. Add chicken; return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F.).
  • 4. Remove from heat. Let chicken cool in the liquid about 15 minutes or until cool enough to handle. When cool enough, transfer chicken to a cutting board and shred chicken into large pieces using two forks. Return shredded chicken to cooking liquid.
  • 5. In a medium size bowl combine beans, corn, tomato, onion, snipped cilantro, lime juice and pepper.
  • 6. Place tortillas on serving plates. Dividing in equal amounts, top with lettuce and bean mixture. Using a slotted spoon, spoon chicken on top of bean mixture. If desired, garnish with cilantro and serve with sour cream and lime wedges.
