    1. Hi Mary!

      In this recipe, we use non-fat plain Greek yogurt as a replacement for sour cream so you could try it with low-fat sour cream.

      In place of fresh cilantro, you could try 2 tsp dried cilantro. Parsley makes a good fresh substitute for cilantro. Cumin could also be used to add flavor to this recipe.
