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
