Mexican Pizza Stacks on Stacks on Stacks

Two recipes?! TWO DAYS IN A ROW!? I'm crazy! We'll get to that.

This week is insane. Today is Thurby (Derby), tomorrow is Oaks Day and Saturday is the Kentucky Derby. I have derby brain. Which is basically the brain that wants to do NO work. The irony is this is the busiest week I've had in a long time at work. :(

I remember when I used to justify my passion for cake and how it is relative to my weight. I'd tell myself, "you can eat a piece of cake if cake is available, you only get it a few times a year." Well, my friends, things have changed. Our office is about 15 deep in people which means 15 birthdays, which, you guessed it, 15 CAKES A YEAR. Not including mine, Mike's and family birthdays.

I'm drowning in cake. Just let me sink. Let the sweet diabetic cake rush into my lungs, I do not care.

And after I drown in cake, bury me in Juleps and cookies.

This recipe is killer. For so many reasons. One, it is DELICIOUS and totally puts my Mexican cravings to rest. Two, it is SOOOO filling and since I made it "light", I felt full but with zero guilt.

Again, bear with me on ingredients and amounts. I promise when it matters, I'll make it right to a tee, but you can't really mess this recipe up!

Ingredients:

8 soft taco tortillas of your choice. We use Mission Carb Balance because they taste great and only have 6 carbs!

16 oz. Fat free sour cream or Greek yogurt.

2 Cups shredded chicken. (We use rotisserie chicken to save time.)

1 1/2 Cups of shredded Mexican cheese. (Cheddar, Colby jack, etc.)

1 Cup grilled onions.

1 Tablespoon of Taco Seasoning.

Guacamole, avocado, pico, cilantro and/or salsa for toppings.

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

Shred chicken.

I used a glass baking dish and oiled it up.

Lay down two soft taco tortillas next to one another on the dish. Top with sour cream/greek yogurt (like icing a cake), chicken, taco seasoning, some cheese and some onion.

Continue this two more times, until your last two tortillas have nothing on top of them.

I sprinkled remaining cheese on top. There may not be much left but that is okay. It's plenty cheesy!

Bake for 20-25 minutes until cheese is at desired "browness".

Slice with pizza cutter into serving sizes desired. I had a small piece and was MORE than satisfied.

Top with goodies and enjoy!!!
