Our Favorite Food
A perennial favorite food in our house is "Quesadilla Casserole". It's great that the family loves it, because it also might just be the easiest thing to make ahead of time and freeze until you want to cook it, or save for leftovers. Goose loves to mix it up and shred chicken with two forks. I make it to feed four, but you could easily add extra beans and/or chicken to stretch.

3 medium to large cooked chicken breasts-shredded
1 can of low sodium black beans
1 cup shredded cheddar (your favorite variety, we like sharp here)
1/4 cup salsa
1 tortilla
optional Nacho Cheese Doritos

Boil the chicken breasts (we usually do this with cayene pepper and chili powder for extra heat). Shred. Put ripped up tortilla (usually prepared by our Goose) in bottom of a casserole dish. Mix Salsa, 3/4 of the cheese, chicken and can of beans together and add into casserole dish. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, top with remaining cheese and Doritos for extra class, and cook for another 10 minutes. Serve.

It's great as leftovers, too.
