This is a variation on Salmon with Noodles & Stir-Fried Vegetables. Cooking time and a couple of the ingredients are different, but it's just as quick and easy. If you don't like fish, give this a try instead.

This is a variation on Spinach Chicken Bake submitted by Silly_Me. The original was too bland and not filling enough for me, so I added pasta, and changed some of the ingredients to liven it up a bit.

This recipe is only for the chicken fajita filling, as the basic ingredients are always the same, but I use different tortillas each time I make this. You can calculate the extra calories for tortillas and sour cream separately to get a more accurate reading.
