Ok, so not too sure........I sent in the recipe below for one of the other LAWL members to our "pure chef." I didn't really even read the recipe, as I have never had a problem with the LA chef before. I just copied and pasted from my e-mail. I am sure Krista can clarify if there are any other questions. Between the two of us, I am sure we can get this recipe stated more clearly. Thanks for pointing this out :)

Can someone give me the LA exchanges for this recipe? It is one of my favorites.

2 cans of Old El Paso enchilada sauce (10 3/4 oz cans)
2 pounds chicken, boiled
8 ounce cheddar cheese, shredded
8 ounce fat free sour cream
10 3/4 ounce of cream of chicken soup
10 3/4 ounce rotel tomatoes
8 tortilla) flour tortillas

Directions
1. Boil 2 pounds boneless chicken breast in a large pot, boiling until meat starts to fall apart; drain. Pull apart. Stir in rotel tomatoes and 1/2 of sour cream.
2. Combine enchilada sauce & cream of chicken soup in a separate pot; bring to a boil.
3. Spoon 1/2 cup chicken mixture down center of each tortilla; sprinkle each with 2 1/2 tablespoons of shredded cheddar cheese. Roll up tortillas, and place each, seam side down, in a lightly greased 13- x 9- x 2-inch baking dish. Pour Enchilada Sauce mixture over top.

Actually, the more I think about it, the more irritated I am. I paid for online access to the Pure Chef, and it seems he/she does not even know if he is an LA Chef or a Pure Chef.....and obviously completely looked over the last three ingredients. I emailed them to see if they will re-do this recipe. Sorry Krista.......it will probably be another 5 business days.

I don't know the fact about this but my neighbor made this and I rampped them to work for me and my plan

Chicken Enchilada's

4 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 whole green pepper
1 - 2 Tbs olive oil
3 spoonfuls of whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups of low sodium chicken broth
1 - 1 1/2 cups of low fat sour cream
1 jar of chunky salsa
1 package of whole wheat tortillas (small size)
cheese can be what you like - I used reduce fat montery jack/mix (you choose how much you want to use)

Chicken - boil the chicken breast about 30 minute and then let cool a little and shredd with fingers.

Cut the green pepper up into little pieces and sautee in olive oil.
when tender sprinkle flour on and make almost like a paste.
then add your chicken stock and whisk (like a gravy) let simmer for a little bit
then add your jar of salsa, add your sour cream. (you now have your encillada sauce and you didn't have to use a can!

With the tortilla's you need to fry for 5-7 seconds on each side in Canola oil. I really pat these well...

I stuff the tortilla's with chicken and cheese and wrap up

In a 9x13 pan put a small amount of sauce (cover bottom)
then lay filled tortilla's seam side down in pan (squish so you get 5 in each row)
Then pour remained of sauce on top and top with remainder cheese.

Sorry like I said my staff said it sounded great but didn't give me numbers so I just guessimated...

Just a little idea!
