Mexican Lasagna Roll-Ups

Yield: 8 lasagna roll-ups

Ingredients:

8 uncooked lasagna noodles
8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
½ cup fat free plain Greek yogurt
6 teaspoons chili powder, divided
2 teaspoons cumin, divided
1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder, divided
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup shredded cooked chicken breast
½ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen and defrosted)
15 oz can crushed fire-roasted tomatoes (if you can only find diced fire-roasted tomatoes, don’t fret! You can pour them in a bowl and break them down in a few seconds using an immersion blender like I did or just toss them in a blender or food processor and pulse a few times to smooth them out a bit)
8 oz can tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar, shredded (I used Cabot 50% sharp)
Optional: sliced scallions for garnish if desired


Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Set aside a 9×13 baking dish.

Cook lasagna according to package instructions. Drain and lay out to dry individually on parchment paper.

While the water is boiling for step one, combine the cream cheese and yogurt in a mixing bowl and stir until well combined. Add 3 teaspoons of the chili powder, 1 teaspoon of the cumin, ½ teaspoon of the garlic powder and the 1 teaspoon of onion powder and mix well. Mix in the shredded chicken, black beans and corn and stir until combined. Set aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the crushed fire-roasted tomatoes and tomato sauce with the remaining 3 teaspoons of chili powder, teaspoon of cumin, teaspoon of garlic powder, salt and oregano and stir together. Set aside.

When the noodles are no longer wet and are cooled enough for you to touch them, spoon 1/3 cup of chicken filling from the first mixing bowl onto each noodle and spread evenly down the middle of the noodle. Starting with one end, roll each noodle over the filling until it forms a complete roll.

Spread about ¾ cup of the tomato sauce from the second mixing bowl across the bottom of the baking dish from step 1. Place each of the 8 lasagna rolls seam-side down on top of the sauce in the dish. Spoon the remaining tomato sauce over the top of the lasagna rolls and sprinkle the shredded cheddar over the tops. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes until heated through.
