1 to 2medium jalapeno chilies, seeded and finely chopped
3-- garlic cloves, minced
1-- (4-ounce) can chopped mild green chilies
1bunch cilantro leaves, chopped
2-- (10-ounce) cans reduced-fat cream of chicken soup
1-- (8-ounce) container light sour cream
3cups shredded cooked chicken
1/2teaspoon salt
