1 (14 1/2-ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can vegetable broth
2 drained canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, divided
2 cups baked tortilla chips
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and next 7 ingredients (onion through garlic); sauté 5 minutes. Add water and next 7 ingredients (water through chiles); bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon half of bean mixture into the bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Top with remaining bean mixture. Cover and bake at 375° for 40 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes. Press chips into casserole.
I gave this 2 stars even though I would not make it again. The dish had no flavor, I could only eat it with a TON of hot sauce. I added a package of Ground Round (ground beef substitute) and didn't alter any of the seasoning, so maybe that was the problem. The texture was good, I used bulgur, but it just lacked flavor. Even if I had doubled the seasoning to account for the ground round, I don't think it would have been a 3 star recipe.
I have been making this for years. As I am a vegeterian it is a standard in my repetoire! My children love it. I make it for myself for the week and often find it gone before I can enjoy it. 2 Chipotle peppers can make it a bit too spicy for kids. Also it is now worth 6 points on the new Weight Watchers plan. Highly recommend!!!
This is AWESOME for people on diets. Anyone who knows the Weight Watchers points system, that comes out to only 4 points a serving - INCLUDING a few tortilla chips!! 1 and 1/2 cups is a lot of food, its satisfying and flavorful. Add some fat free sour cream, a few extra chips for a 5 point meal. This stuff is great. I highly recommend it - be careful on the spice level if you don't like things super spicy...
I've made this twice, once for a Super Bowl party, and once for a work lunch party. It was a hit both times. Very flavorful, healthy and not too much work to make. Good for a basic, solid lunch or dinner.
