The best part is that they are only 190 calories per serving, so you don’t have to feel guilty if you want seconds. Ingredients include corn tortillas, shredded chicken, queso fresco cheese, tomatillos, arbol chile pepper, guajillo or cascabel chile peppers, garlic, onions, water, and oil.

  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 piece onions
