Taco Casserole

This was SO delicious. The entire family ate it with no complaints. I was worried that it would need to be served with brown rice or something but it was great on it's on, with a side of veggies.


1 lb ground skinless chicken breast (I used 1lb of turkey ground)
1/2 c onions, chopped
1/2 c bell peppers, chopped
1 clove garlic
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1 jar of salsa
16oz fat-free sour cream
16oz fat-free cottage cheese
low-fat tortilla chips, whole or broken up
1 c low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Possible things to add: 1 can of black beans
                                   1 cup of corn


Heat oven to 400. Spray cooking spray on bottom of a 9x13 dish (or 2 8x8 dishes if you want to freeze 1); set aside. In a skillet, cook chicken, onion, peppers, and garlic clove until tender. Add seasoning mix and salsa; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine sour cream and cottage cheese; set aside. Place solid layer of broken chips in the bottom of casserole dish. Add meat mixture to cover the chips, then cover the meat with sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and more crushed chips. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until cheese has melted.

Makes 8 (1 Cup Servings)
