This is my go-to receipe when I have to make something for a pot luck. This dish can be made with either chicken, ground beef or ground turkey.

**I take some shortcuts while making this receipe. Instead of having two different cheese I just buy a large bag of shredded mexican cheese.

**As far as the chicken, depending on the mood I am in, sometimes I used two large can of the chicken you can get at Costco.

This is amazing leftover! And it freezes great.
