Cut some calories by omitting the Cheddar and sour cream. Make it a meaty meal by adding some leftover chicken towards the end. If you don’t like sweet potatoes, simply substitute a cubed regular potato instead, microwaving it for two minutes before adding it to the pan. If you double the recipe, the leftovers can be used to fill wraps for your next two lunches.
