Recipe: Quesadilla Pie

Quesadilla Pie
It's a casserole. It's a pie. It's really, really good.
By The Kids Cook Monday

Ingredients: 1 rotisserie chicken (about 2 pounds), skin removed, meat shredded
2 cups chunky salsa, divided
1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
3 (7 1/2 inch-diameter) whole-wheat tortillas
1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 cup baby spinach, divided

Adult: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Kid: In a large bowl, combine the shredded chicken, 1 cup of the salsa and the sour cream. Stir until combined. Spread another 1/2 cup of the salsa onto the bottom of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.

Together: Layer one of the tortillas into the pie plate; top with half of the chicken mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and half the spinach. Repeat layering the chicken mixture, cheddar and spinach once more. Top with the remaining tortilla, 1/2 cup salsa and 1/4 cup cheddar cheese.

Adult: Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 minutes more, or until the cheese melts. Let cool slightly before slicing into wedges.
