Make It Leaner
Use only 3 tortillas per person and you’ll save 35 calories per serving. Skip the oil and cook the chicken in a nonstick frying pan to shave off about 20 calories and 2.5 grams of fat per portion.
Tomatillos are cousins of tomatoes (both are members of the nightshade family) but come with a papery husk and remain green when ripe. They have a tangy, citrusy flavor that makes them delicious in everything from stews to salsas.
