    Annacia's Note:

    From Diabetic Living, this is great. They say: "Instead of using loads of calorie-laden regular sour cream, we lightened these enchiladas with a creamy filling that includes only a wisp of light sour cream." Works for me.

      *Test Kitchen Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

      I have made these twice now and remember to rate this. I'm from NM and pretty picky. I was surprised when this simple recipe hit the spot and is diabetic friendly (my G-ma is a diabetic). 1000 cool points! :)

      Yummy comfort food. I used stock that I had made so I skipped the bouillon keeping the salt down, 0 percent fat yogurt replaced the sour cream, dried beans that was soaked and cooked till tender replaced the canned keeping the salt down. This was part of Menu #30102. Made for photo tag. Thank YOU!
