My mouth is watering just thinking about writing about this dish. My gal pal, Independent Scentsy Consultant, and keeper of my dirty little secrets turned me on to this recipe by Let's Dish Recipes. I've made this many times and each time have swapped out different ingredients to change it up a bit. Best thing about easy and delicious recipes like this one is you really have to try hard to make it not taste good ( like using sweaty gym socks instead of cheese).
I've made this with shrimp instead of chicken, added spinach, used corn tortillas instead of flour, and last night I used vegetable broth instead of chicken because that's what I had in the house. I never have real butter (such shame I know) so I typically leave it out. Also I use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Not only do you save on calories and fat BIG TIME, but you get an insane amount of protein in your meal.
Always, always, always Hubs says he's gonna punch me they taste so good. And since I'm a huge fan of delicious food driven spousal abuse, I make these over and over again. Easy-peasy. Enjoy!
