I made this with left over chicken and I must say for only being 5 points this is really good! I added one more Anaheim and jalapeno and also sprinkled it with crushed red pepper because we were in the mood for a spicy lunch! I also used a combination of red, green and yellow bell peppers (great color!)I served them on flour tortillas with sour cream and avocado slices Thank you for a wonderful meal!
