Texican Lasagne

This is the Texican Lasagna that I've been eating. It's very yummy!

6 corn tortillas (i've been using 8 so that it covers the bottom and middle layer)
1 1/2 cups shredded light cheese (i've been using the reduced fat mexican shredded cheese)
2 skinless boneless chicken breasts, boiled and sliced (the package i've been buying comes with 3, so i use all 3)
3 cups marinara sauce
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. crushed red pepper

Mix spices with marinara sauce. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray and place a layer of corn tortillas in pan. Next add a layer of marinara sauce. Add the chicken and black beans on top of this. Next add layer of cheese. Add another layer of tortillas, sauce and remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until cheese begins to brown.
Cut into 6 servings.
