I did use half fat free sour cream and it worked fine. these were awesome even better the next day.

To make even healthier I use whole wheat tortillas and substitute the sour cream with non-fat plain greek yogurt. These are extremely easy to make and taste delicious.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 10, 2011

I really liked this "lighter" version and I made two pans and froze one since there are only two of us. I did not bake the one I was going to freeze because everything was basically cooked. When I thawed and heated the frozen one, I did so on a very low heat (325) for about 40 minutes. That way my low-fat sour cream and soup didn't separate as much. Great recipe!

Brown your chicken in either taco seasoning or enchilada seasoning, like Schilling
