  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 large white onion, diced

Preheat oven to 450°.

Bring a large skillet up to medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Saute onion and pepper for 4-5 minutes. Add garlic; sauté another minute. Stir in chicken, beans, broth and salsa. Cook another 1-2 minutes.

Place 1/3 of tortilla strips in bottom of a greased 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Layer half of chicken mixture over tortillas; top with half of the remaining tortilla strips.
