I have no idea where I got this recipe. It has been sitting on my desktop for about 3 years, and I didn't try it until last night. If only I had known! This is so yummy! And you can't even tell that it's lowfat!

These were GREAT! Recipe looks complicated, at first, but really isn't. Used pulled meat from a roasted chicken and didn't really do any measuring, just eyeballed the ingredients. Hot rice and black beans on the side, mmmmmmm

This was great!! My picky husband, who is from Mexico City, even liked it. Great recipe! I used fat free refried beans on the side instead of the black beans. This one sure is a keeper.

We loved this! I spaced out while making this and accidently mixed all the sauce with the chicken and spinach and then had to make a second batch of sauce to go on top. I'll probably always make it this way now - it was saucy and delicious - not a bad mistake after all!
