posted by Marlen 09-24-100 1:10 PM


1 Dozen corn tortillas, several days old
1 cup Onions, chopped
2 Cloves garlic, pressed or 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Cumin powder
1 1/2 cups Lowfat cottage cheese
1 1/2 cups Crushed tomatoes
6 oz. Grated jack or Cheddar cheese
Salt to taste
1 tsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut tortillas into wedges or tear into strips. Saute onions in oil for 5 minutes. (A non-stick or cast iron skillet that's ovenproof is ideal for this.) Add tortilla pieces, chili powder, garlic, cumin and salt.
Toss until the tortilla pieces are wilted.

Puree cottage cheese and tomatoes in blender until smooth. Stir gently into tortilla pieces. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
