Chilequiles

Sort of a cross between nachos and pizza, chilequiles are crunchy, gooey and
delicious. A great way to use leftovers, they make a wonderful first course, snack or
entree in a soup-and-something supper.

Makes 4 servings

Eight 6″ corn tortillas, each cut into eighths
4 servings (1/3 cups) Cooked Red Sauce
One or more Toppings (see below)
1 1/2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
2 tablespoons plain nonfat yogurt

Preheat oven to 250oF. Spray 9″ flameproof pie pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Place tortilla pieces in a single layer on large baking sheet; bake 1 hour, until
tortillas are very crisp and dry. Remove from oven; set aside.
In large bowl, toss tortilla pieces with sauce; spread evenly in prepared pie pan.
Sprinkle evenly with topping(s), then cheese. Bake, loosely covered, 20 minutes,
until heated through and cheese is melted.
Preheat broiler.
Broil tortilla mixture 4″ from heat, 1 minute, until cheese is lightly browned.
In small bowl, combine sour cream and yogurt; spoon onto tortilla mixture. Serve
immediately.
