Taco Casserole
(recipe found on Pinterest via http://www.weight-waters-recipes.net/)

1 pound ground skinless chicken breast (I didn't catch this part - so I just used lean ground beef)
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
1 clove garlic
1 package taco seasoning mix
8 ounces taco sauce
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 cup low fat tortilla chips, broken up
1 cup low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
3/4 cup salsa

Heat oven to 400. Spray cooking spray on bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish; set aside. In a skillet, cook chicken, onion, peppers and garlic clove until tender. Add seasoning mix and taco sauce; set aside. Place half of broken chips in the bottom of the casserole dish. Add meat mixture to cover the chops, then cover the meat with sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and remaining broken chips. Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until cheese has melted. Top with 3/4 cup salsa.

Serves: 8 (1 cup per serving)
Points: 7 per serving
