Ingredients

    4 chicken breasts cooked

    1 16 oz container of light sour cream
    1 can 10 oz rotel diced tomatos and green chillies
    1 can organic condensed mushroom soup
    1 can kidney beans (drained)

    1/2 bag of corn chips (1/2 of a 13.5 oz bag)

    2 cups low fat shredded Mexican cheese

    Pre heat oven to 360

    Cook the chicken in a pan until white and season with herby or chilli powder seasoning. Cut up into 1 inch cubes

    In a large baking dish combine sour cream, kidney beans, Rotel tomatoes and chillis, mushroom soup, and chicken.

    Crush 1/4 bag of chips and stir into the mixture. Top with the other 1/4 bag of chips and then sprinkle cheese over the top of the casserole dish.

    Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until the cheese is melty.

    This is low fat but not exactly fat free - it is a good comfort food when you feel like cheating on your diet but you really do not want to. The main thing is to think about your portion control - eat in moderation. This reminds me of a chicken enchilada that you would get in a Mexican restaurant but less fat and less expense. This serves 8. Eat one serving and be happy. Have a salad with this - it makes a nice meal!
