I love this recipe! I made a few minor changes to make the dish lower calorie, including replacing the cream cheese with additional cottage cheese, using low fat sour cream and grated cheese, using brown rice and leaving off the corn chips. This was amazing even with those changes so I can imagine how delicious the full fat version would be. I am going to add this to my regular rotation. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
