I'm sharing, Skinny Mexican Style Chicken and Cornbread Casserole...This casserole is a real keeper! It’s a cinch to make, freezes great and only needs a side salad to serve with it! The skinny for 1 serving, 323 calories, 8 grams of fat and 8 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.

I belong to a meal plan service that is geared towards lower fat foods so all these ingredients are low fat. But you could change that if you want. They usually have at least one mexican or ethnic food every week just because they tend to be budget friendly too. This is a favorite at our house:
From: Shrinking On A Budget Meal Plans
24 baked tortilla chips (either plain or nacho cheese)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1(4 oz) can diced fire roasted chilis
1 pound Extra Lean Ground Beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 can reduced sodium black beans
1 cup salsa
1 cup 2% sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Heat oven to 350. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and jalapenos. Saute 2 minutes. Add garlic and saute all another 3 minutes, or until onions and jalapenos are soft. Add meat and taco seasoning. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, for about 5 minutes. Add beans and salsa. Mix well and continue to cook until salsa thickens.Break tortilla chips into large bite sized pieces (approximately in half) into a casserole dish. Spoon the meat and bean mixture over the chips in large dollops then smooth slightly. Top with cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese has melted.
