1 tbsp (15 mL) Paprika
2 tsp (10 mL) Cumin
2 tsp (10 mL) Chili powder
1 tsp (5 mL) Oregano
.5 tsp (2 mL) Coriander
.25 tsp (1 mL) Cayenne
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) Cornstarch
1 tbsp (15 mL) Vegetable oil
3 Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into very small pieces
1 Onion, diced
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 cup Chicken broth or water
1 tbsp (15 mL) Lime juice
1 Red Pepper, diced
1 (14 oz/398 mL) Can refried beans
1 Large bag tortilla chips
2 cups (500 mL) Grated Cheddar or Tex Mex cheese
Shredded lettuce


PREHEAT oven to 350°F (180°C).

COMBINE all taco seasoning ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

HEAT oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Add onions and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally until onions are soft. Add taco seasoning mixture and stir to coat chicken. Pour in chicken broth and lime juice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.

PLACE a layer of tortilla chips on a large rimmed baking sheet. Top with refried beans, chicken mixture, red pepper and cheese. Repeat layers using up all ingredients.

BAKE in preheated oven for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Garnish with shredded lettuce and serve immediately.
