In a large non stick skillet over medium heat that has been sprayed with Pam add onion, corn and red pepper. Saute until tender. Add the shredded cooked chicken, garlic, chili powder, cilantro and cumin and green chilies. Saute for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat. Spread ½ cup of sauce over bottom of 13 x 9 baking dish that has been coated with Pam. Arrange ½ of the corn tortillas over the sauce. Spoon 2 cups of the chicken mixture evenly over tortillas. Top with 1/2 cup sauce. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheeses. Repeat layers starting again with tortillas and ending with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for about 25 min or until bubbly. Let rest 5 min. before cutting. Serve with no fat sour cream on the side and either homemade salsa or store bought salsa.
