Un-Chained Recipe Contest: Chicken Tacos with homemade salsa

I have a soft spot for chipotle, but their tacos are SO high in calories. 3 will cost you up to 900 calories and 47 grams of fat.

This recipe provides all the flavor of a chiptole taco, but with less calories and less fat! Submitted by APHIAD

Quesadilla Explosion Salad: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist

Oh, Quesadilla Explosion Salad! How I love you!
I have eaten plenty of these at Chili's and was "Oh so surprised!" to see it listed as #2 on the 10 worst restaurant salads! Number T-O-O! Too much fat, Too many calories, Too many points!

It's a salad! How can it be so bad for you?

Something had to be done! This is my response. I have also created recipes for the various ingredients used in this salad. They are named as they appear in the list of ingredients. Feel free to use them or your own. Beware the nutrition data of this salad will change if you use another version. Submitted by LILDVA

Mexican Chicken Soup

This is your basic chicken tortilla soup without the tortilla's factored into the bottom line calorie total. It is a pretty fast and filling lunch or dinner that you can throw together using an already cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Fee free to customize it any way you see fit.Submitted by SHANNONM99

Green Chile Chicken Bake

A low-carb casserole that will please even the non-dieters.

The chiles can be found at any international market. To lighten the calorie load, I use 2% Mexican blend shredded cheese and 1% milk. Also, to speed this recipe up, I often use chicken breasts off an already-cooked rotisserie from the store.Submitted by GREENPORCHLIGHT
