Layered Mexican Chicken

This is a recipe I got on the weight watchers web site. It is SO GOOD and only 6 points for a hearty serving. Even if you aren't watching your weight, it is a great and filling dish.

    We really thought this was good. I cut it down to serve six and put only one cup of the sour cream.I will be making this again, however; I think the next time i make this i will use leftover chicken that is already seasoned, the boiled chicken made the dish just a tad bland even with all the spices(it wasnt bad, just missing something for me). thank you for sharing a yummy recipe.

    I halved this and got 6 big servings. Need to write some notes here. Used 5% creme fraiche, made and used refried beans, only piut a bit of cheese on top, used all the salsa. Really spicy but great, will certainly make again. Might cut or shred the chicken more finely next time and I used dark turkey as it was what I had.

    This has become a family favorite. We all love it. The only changes I make is I cut back on the sour cream and throw the salsa in with the chicken mixture. Very yummy. Thanks for posting! Amy

    Don't know what was wrong with me today, TRUE! Saw salsa, threw it INTO mixture too! Saw chilli, put two tablespoons crushed! And to be honest, I did not rush! This is GREAT for entertaining! When it's sunny or if it's raining! Thanks for sharing!
