Good use for leftover chicken or turkey. Can also sub canned chicken in this. The sauce has a bit of a kick from the chipotles. Use more or less to your taste.

My husband and I altered this a little and it tasted great. Instead of brown rice we used bulgar wheat. We replaced the garlic powder and salt with a 1/2 tsp. of adobo seasoning. We also replaced the sour cream with low-fat plain yogurt, and just used a small sprinkle of cheese. To give the peppers a roasted flavor, we skipped the microwave and put them right on the gas burner until the skins just turn black. We served it all on a bed of spinach. This will be one we make again!
