4. Lightly grease a 9x9 casserole dish.
5. Place 2 corn tortillas on bottom of the casserole dish.
6. Cover with chicken mixture.
7. Repeat until all tortillas are gone. Note: The final layer should be 2 tortillas.
8. Place drained Rotel and remaining cheddar cheese on top.
9. Cover with foil and bake for 45 min.
10. Remove foil and place under broiler for 3-5 mins.
11. Garnish with chopped green onions.

Tips from the Chef:
* Boil your chicken to prevent from overcooking.
* If Rotel is not available, use a can of Mexican Stewed Tomatoes.

Black Bean Corn Salsa
Salsa does just not have to be served with the traditional tortilla chips anymore. This black bean corn salsa is a great addition to any meal, or dish. Best of all, it is a fat free and low calorie accompaniment.

** 1 can black beans - drained and washed
** 1 can corn - drained
** 1/2 cup diced red onion
** 1/4 cup diced jalapenos
** 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
** 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
** 2 large tomatoes - diced
** 2 cloves garlic - chopped
** salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash all your veggies, drain all your canned goods, and cut as described. Combine all into a plastic or glass container.

2. Chill in the refrigerator at least 8 hours, or overnight, before serving.

Tip From the Chef
* Do not use a metal container to store the salsa. The acids in the lime juice and tomatoes will have a reaction with the metal.

Serving Suggestions:
* Serve with warm tortilla chips.
* Serve as a sauce for fresh fish.
* Wrap in a warm tortilla with chicken, sliced avocado, and lettuce.
* Place inside a breakfast omelet.
* Add to a bed of mixed greens with some crushed tortilla chips.
