Creamy chicken caliente
Creamy Chicken Caliente
Ok so I couldn't think of a good name for this. Haha... I made this for dinner the other night, and I was basically just grabbing random things and throwing them on the stove. It turned out decently tasty. So here it is.
Quite frankly, I can't remember the exact quantities of everything I put in, so I'm not going to risk listing a recipe here. However I will describe it generally, so if it strikes your fancy, it should be very easy to replicate it according to your taste.
I took frozen chicken fajita strips and put them in a pan on low-medium heat. After a few minutes I added about 3/4 c low-fat sour cream, and about 1/2 c Pace picante sauce. I chopped up a jalapeño and threw that in there, along with a small can of shoepeg corn. I just warmed it enough so the chicken got hot...can't overheat it or the sour cream mixture will get too soupy.
In the meantime, I toasted whole-wheat tortillas in a skillet on high-heat. No oil needed....just toast each side for a few minutes, and they should get browned and crispy. I also used some corn tortillas. To serve, I spooned the chicken mixture over the tortilla, and added some chopped tomatoes, onions, and more jalapeños.
As for how to eat it, it's up to you. You can spoon the sauce over the tortilla and roll it up, or you can break up the tortilla, mix it all up and eat it with a fork.
