Wow, I tried this with what I had on hand it was great. Here are my changes based on the contents of the frig. We like some spice at my house. To the onions I added a tomatillo and a jalapeño (seeds and all) and a garlic clove. After I pulled the chicken out of the water I let it keep boiling and reduce and added that water as my water for this recipe and the Spanish rice. My husband will not eat sour cream =( I did the unthinkable I subbed ricotta cheese. Not as much but I added about a tablespoon of sour cream all I can get away with. I hit it with a dash of white vinegar to sour it up a tad. I had to do one more adjustment, I made taco season from a recipe on this site but it doesn’t have the thickener that the store bought loaded with salt has. So I added some File. It’s a decent thickener. My hubby gave it a 9 of ten. I really don’t like using canned soup as they are really bad for you so I will try something else for that next time maybe a avocado puree or Spanish cheese sauce. The tomatillo was a great addition and the pepper. The cheese actually worked well but who knows what will be on hand next time. Last thing, I use 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts from Sam’s and I had a lot of meat left over. Next time two large ones are fine.
