These are too easy & too yummy! Great way to use up left over chicken too!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This easy dish really does prove that simple is often best. My family loves Mexican food and this is a great way to quickly whip-up a hunger-satisfying snack. Sometimes there's just no need to over-complicate things in the kitchen.

I have a real fondness for salsa verde and used Reta Smith's recipe for it in this dish. If you haven't tried it yet, I suggest you give it a go. It really does add a unique, fresh flavor that can't be beat. I also used rotisserie chicken in this recipe to make preparation a breeze. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
