1/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup shredded nonfat mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup salsa
2 tablespoon nonfat sour cream
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and cracked black pepper to taste

1. Combine the paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Season raw chicken breast with the spice mixture. Coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat the skillet. Add the chicken and cook on medium heat until brown, turning once. Cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes more or until the chicken is fully cooked. Cool and cut into cubes.

2. Preheat the toaster oven to 350 F. Place tortilla on a cutting board. Arrange the cubed chicken on the tortilla and top with black beans and mozzarella. Cover with the other tortilla and press down. Bake until the cheese is melted.
