Recipe by ChipotleChick

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
