EatingWell Test Kitchen
“For a series on ABC's Good Morning America, we did an EatingWell Rx of the hosts' favorite recipes. One of Charles Gibson's favorites is a hearty Chili-Taco Casserole, which, before undergoing an EatingWell makeover, weighed in at 36 grams of fat per serving; that has now been reduced by more than a third. ”
2 teaspoons canola oil
12 corn tortillas
¼ teaspoon salt
1 15-ounce can chili with meat and beans
1 15-ounce can pinto beans, rinsed
1 10-ounce can enchilada sauce, (1¼ cups)
1 8-ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 tablespoon grated onion
1 cup grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, (4 ounces)
½ cup nonfat sour cream
½ cup nonfat plain yogurt
1Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat 2 baking sheets and a shallow 3-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2Brush oil lightly over one side of each tortilla. Sprinkle with salt. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges and arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheets. Bake until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes, rotating the baking sheets midway through baking. Let cool.
3Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F. Stir together chili, pinto beans, enchilada sauce, tomato sauce, onions and ¾ cup of the cheese in a large bowl. Add 4 cups of the tortilla crisps and stir to coat them with sauce. Turn into the prepared baking dish and bake until bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.
4Mix together sour cream and yogurt in a small bowl and spread over the top of the casserole. Sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup cheese and 2 cups tortilla crisps. Bake for 5 minutes longer.
