I absolutely L O V E D this recipe. Seriously. LOVED it. So did hubby. I was so thrilled. It's easy to make and tastes divine. It's also very filling. I used "raw" tortillas (the kind you have to cook before using) which added at least 30 minutes but they were so worth it. I'm planning to make them again this week. And I posted a link to this post in my blog posting scheduled to go live on Wednesday. Thanks for all your hard work!

Love the questions and happy to answer them.... sour cream can be frozen but it gets a really funky texture so I try NOT to. Pam You find Salsa Verde in the mexican food section of the store... normally next to salsa, dry chili's and what not. Hope that helps

@Pam Salsa Verde is green salsa, as opposed to red salsa. It's really tasty!

I hate to ask you this but I honestly don't know what salsa verde is? Also, where would I find this in the grocery store. I would love to make this for my family! I would appreciate any help you can give me on this. I love, love, love your site! You have no ideal how much you help me with budgeting for my family. Thank you! Pam

Why thank you very much for planning dinner for me one night next week!!! This looks & sounds divine. Strange question, but can you freeze sour cream? I've never tried freezing it because we don't use it often. Since you've taught me so much about couponing, it would be nice to get it on sale, w/ a coupon of course, & freeze it for future use.

Yum-o! I've seen you picture these before on your blog. They looked so good. I love that you cook the chicken with the salsa verde - I always just add it in after the chicken is cooked. Can't wait to try these. thanks.
