I got this recipe from "Fix it and Forget It Lightly." Hence, its calorie info and the use of healthier ingredients. I actually shredded my chicken instead of slicing into bite sized pieces. I added some frozen corn as well. I felt like it needed a little more flavor...maybe a dash of taco seasoning would help. I love adding the cheese and sour cream and corn chips at the end. Yum! 3 stars.

    My neighbor made this exact same recipe for me, except she added corn and cilantro, and it was soooo good! Thanks for the reminder, I'm going to make this on Sunday.
