White chicken chili tacos

March 11, 2018

I’ve been wanting to make a taco recipe for a long time now, I picked up these Mission yellow corn tortillas on my last trip to the U.S. After speaking with a friend of mine here in Canada (Hi Dawn) we determined that the Grimm’s corn tortilla’s here in Canada have the same point value. I have also had a white chicken chili recipe on my “to-do” list for awhile now as it can be very point friendly on WW freestyle, so I did what I thought was best and combined the two. These tacos are so good and have great flavor plus theyΒ come together super easy, just 2 freestyle smart points each.

White chicken chili tacos
Recipe type: Main meals
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 14
2SP blue & purple, 3SP green /2PP
  • 14 small tortilla's (as shown)
  • 1 Tbsp light butter (I use Gay Lea)
  • 1.5 Tbsp flour
  • ½ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • ¼ cup light sour cream
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp chopped canned green chilies
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp chili powder
  • 2 cup (8oz) cooked shredded chicken
  • ¾ cup frozen corn
  • Diced green onion
  • 3.5 oz shredded reduced fat mozzarella (I use Trader Joe's)
  1. In a pan on the stove melt your butter over medium heat, stir in your flour quickly, it will form a paste.
  2. Whisk in your milk till the paste has dissolved, about 1 minute, stir in sour cream and broth and cook for 2 minutes stirring often, the sauce should thicken. Add seasonings and green chilies, remove from heat and set aside (you can give it a few stirs while it is set aside so it does not set too much)
  3. Preheat oven to 400F, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  4. In a bowl mix your shredded chicken, corn and green onion together, pour in your cream sauce and mix well.
  5. Heat a small frying pan on stove over medium heat and add some cooking spray. Heat up one tortilla at a time, place in pan and give the tortilla a light spray, warm about 20 seconds on each side then place on your baking tray.
  6. Scoop about 2 Tbsp of chicken mixture into your tortilla, top with 1 Tbsp shredded cheese and fold over, repeat with all 14 tortillas. I lightly sprayed all of the tortillas just before going into the oven to "crisp" them up a bit.
  7. Bake in the oven for approx 12 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately, makes 14 tacos. They will freeze well, store in the fridge.

    These were delicious. I had to use a 12oz can of chicken breast because I was too lazy to go to the store and it turned out great. The flavor was so nice and they did crisp up in the oven with a few extra squirts of olive oil. It’s hard to believe they are only 2pts each. Such a nice change from the typical beef tacos. I just had to try them and I am so glad I did!

    I made these on Monday night and they were delish! I only made a half batch since I live alone and didn’t think I needed 14!
    I ate 3 on Monday (7 points) but so good. Might up the spices next time for extra flavor (or use low sodium taco mix)
    Thanks for posting!

    Yum, these look great! Do you bake them before freezing? How would you thaw and reheat them after freezing?

      Hi Jane, I think you could probably freeze them either before baking or after, I personally would heat them up in the oven (or air fryer if you have one) I’m not a fan of reheating in the microwave

      HI Leslie, I think these will freeze just fine, you could freeze them before baking in oven or even after, then I personally would heat up in the oven to try and crisp them up a bit

      Hi Mary, yup, I used the WW recipe builder, those small tortilla’s are actually 3 for 4SP, so when you build the recipe and work it out to one it gave me a 2SP value, I always build my recipes in the WW app for point value

      Hi Katy, so glad you enjoyed them, I would freeze them in portions you want (so if wanting 2 at a time freeze 2 together, in a small container or ziplock) I’d reheat in oven to crisp them up or air fryer if you have one

      Hi Deb, that was a typo on my behalf, I have updated it to incl the tortilla’s in the ingredients but I can assure you they are incl in the nutritional info and the freestyle SP value when I built the recipe in the WW App

    Hi Drizzle! thank you so much for all of your yummy recipes! i’ve made about 9 of them so far, and i loved them all! I made these yesterday, my only complaint was that when they were done, i noticed i never used the green chilli’s yet i bought them because they were on the ingredient list, however in your instructions you never said when to add them so i forgot all about them.. maybe edit and add in there when to add the chilli’s i’m sure i could guess where, but i just followed your recipe verbatim and forgot all about the chilli’s (my fault) Thank you so much! I look forward to trying many many more! πŸ™‚ Have a great day!

    Could I lower the point value by using greek yogurt instead of sour cream? Love, love, love your recipes. I can’t tell you how many have become my go to’s. Thanks!

      Thank you, that is so great to hear πŸ™‚ Honestly, I don’t think by swapping out the sour cream will be enough to change the overall points per taco but you can do the swap out if you prefer πŸ™‚
