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 they 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
2 freestyle SP, 3SP/2PP
  • 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, 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.

      Hi Judy, I left a link to their website in the post you can click on it and see what stores carry them

    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

    I love to meal prep. Have you ever made these and frozen them for use later in the week. I want to make them and freeze some?

      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

    Are you sure these are 2 Freestyle Points? The tortilla alone is 2 pts

      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

    Sorry am confused is this including the tortilla?

      Yes, the tortilla’s are 3 for 4SP, I use the WW recipe builder to determine the points

    These were amazing, what is the best way to freeze and reheat them?!

      Reply Drizzle March 21, 2018 at 7:42 pm

      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
