Holy Cow...I Can Cook?

I started this food blog New Years 2010 to force myself to get in the kitchen and teach myself how to cook. Well it has been a year, and it turns out, cooking isn't so hard after all. I kept the promise I made to myself and cooked healthy yummy meals for my family all year. Once I just got in there, read the recipes, and experimented I found cooking is yet another form of artistic expression. Just like with my art, I let go of the fear of failure and found a new passion.

Tortilla Stacks

This meal was super easy, and very light!

1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp Grape Seed oil (or regular canola oil)
2 cups cooked chicken breast (shredded)
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups of Green Chili Sauce (bottled green salsa)
9 6-inch corn tortillas
1/2 cup Queso Cotija crumbled
(Queso Cotija is a Mexican cheese, if you can't find it, you can use feta)

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute another minute. Add chicken then season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat, stir to combine.
3. Coat an 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Spread a thin layer of green sauce in the dish. Arrange 3 tortillas in a row in baking dish over the layer of sauce. Top evenly with a quarter of the chicken mixture. Spoon some more sauce over the chicken, top with 3 more tortillas. Repeat layers, ending with tortillas. Spread remaining sauce over the 3 tortilla stacks. Sprinkle cheese over the top of each stack.
4. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
