  • CourseSnacks & Serving A Crowd
Ingredients
  • 1.5 lbs. chicken breasts
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 1 package fajita mix
  • 1- 4 oz. can diced green chilies
  • 1 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 2- 8 oz. packages cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 Tblsp. dried cilantro
  • 2- 8 oz. packages of shredded cheese, Mexican blend or cheddar
Instructions
  1. ♦ Dice vegetables.
    ♦ In a large skillet, sauté chicken in a bit of olive oil. Brown both sides and cook just until juices run clear. Remove from skillet to a plate or cutting board. Slice into thin slices and shred or dice into small pieces.
    ♦ Add veggies to the pan with oil as needed, sauté until tender.
    ♦ Put chicken back into the pan with veggies, add fajita mix and any water per package directions.
    ♦ Add chilies and tomatoes, do not drain. Stir to mix and let it simmer for a minute or two.
    ♦ Cut cream cheese into chunks and add to mixture, let melt and gently stir to blend.
    ♦ Stir in other seasonings to your taste, I’ve listed the spices and amounts that I used.
  2. ♦ Pour ½ of hot cheese/fajita mixture into a 13X9 baking dish or divide between two 9 inch, deep dish pie plates – so you can serve it hot from the oven early on and save one to serve fresh later!
    ♦ Sprinkle with half of the shredded cheese. Top with the last half of cheese/fajita mixture.
    ♦ Sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese evenly over the top. Bake now or refrigerate.
  3. ♦ Just before serving, bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and heated through. Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or Fritos Scoops.
