Ingredients
 

  • tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups chopped onions divided
  • 1 pound crimini mushrooms sliced 1⁄4 inch thick
  • 2 medium zucchini sliced 1⁄4 inch thick
  • teaspoon salt divided
  • 1 can (28oz) fire-roasted diced tomatoes undrained
  • 1 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic smashed
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 12 ounces cooked chicken breast shredded
  • 18 small corn tortillas
  • 6 ounces reduced-fat Mexican style shredded cheese
  • ¾ cup fat free sour cream optional

Instructions
 

  • Turn on the oven and set it to 425° F
  • Spray a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • When the oil is hot, add 2 cups of onion. Cook them until they're see-through, which takes about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms, zucchini, and 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt to the skillet. Cook these veggies for 15 to 20 minutes until they're soft. Stir them now and then.
  • While the vegetables are cooking, make the sauce. In a blender, mix tomatoes, chipotle pepper, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, the rest of the onion, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Blend them until smooth.
  • Once the vegetables are done, put them in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and 1 cup of the tomato sauce you just made. Mix them together.
  • Take your baking dish and spread 1⁄2 cup of the tomato sauce on the bottom.
  • Place 6 tortillas over the sauce. It's okay if they overlap to fit in the dish.
  • On top of the tortillas, add half of your chicken and veggie mix. Then sprinkle 1⁄2 cup of cheese over it.
  • Now, layer 6 more tortillas, the rest of the chicken mixture, and another 1⁄2 cup of cheese.
  • Finish by placing the last 6 tortillas on top. Cover them with the remaining tomato sauce and sprinkle the rest of the cheese over it.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. It should look golden and bubbly when it's done.
  • Let rest 5 to 10 minutes to let it cool down a bit before serving.
  • Serve each piece with a tablespoon of sour cream.
