Luciluna's Tortilla Casserole

This recipe comes to us from Luciluna, over at Musings from Luciluna. Well, no - that's not quite right! It actually comes from her other blog, here, also a recipe blog! And while you're in the neighborhood (and especially if you enjoy awesome needlework), you might want to check out her third blog here. And she generously shares her fondest memories with us all right here on her Things I Recall With Gratitude blog. In her spare time (!!) she sings - mostly classical. Would you believe she describes herself as "shy" in her intro?!! Luciluna, whatever it is you think you may be shy of -- it certainly isn't energy, or inspiration for the rest of us! Welcome Aboard, Luciluna - and Thank You!

Serves 4-6
Quick and Easy

3 Tortillas, whole grain
2 cans chopped green chiles
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups (12 ounces) of milk
1 can refried beans (I use fat free)
6-8 ounces low-fat shredded Colby and jack cheeses

Spray the bottom of 2 quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray, like Pam. Layer like a lasagna in this order - tortilla, 1/3 can of refried beans, 1/3 of chiles, 1/4 of cheese in three layers, saving the last fourth of cheese for top. Whisk the eggs and milk together. Pour egg-milk mixture over casserole, and top with cheese.

Bake for 35-40 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Can be made in a cake pan or a casserole wide enough to accommodate the tortillas.

Serve with sour cream and salsa!
