Very Good 4.6/5
Found this one years ago in a healthy magazine. 10 years later it is still one of our favorites and my college son now cooks it for him and his buddies. We take the leftovers and use it in a tortilla the next day for lunch with sour cream and cheese.

This recipe makes quite a bit, so you can take half of the remaining chicken mixture and sauce and make soup. See "sour cream chicken enchilada soup" that I also submitted.

This stuffed bell pepper recipe is really delicious! You can use red bell peppers if you like that flavor better. It incorporates your protein, starch, and veggies in one neat package! Brown rice is used for an added nutritional punch.

Feel good about serving this low-calorie low-fat meal. Not only is it low in saturated fat, but the cheese provides calcium and the broccoli is a good source of vitamin C. As a bonus, the broccoli teams up with the spaghetti sauce to provide vitamin A and the multi-grain pasta is a good source of fiber. Carb Choices: 3-1/2
