This is an old recipe of mine that I changed to a lower fat version. My husband loves it and likes me to add a small can of jalapeno peppers to spice it up.

This is also a very good size serving - you will be full and satisfied.

Something I grew up eating as a kid, but with ground beef. Gave it a twist with fajita chicken. Yummy!

Made from scratch..use spicier (or milder)chiles according to your taste. You can serve this directly over steamed rice, or use as a burrito or taco filling.

This is a spin-off of the Chili's Southwestern Egg rolls. Instead of deep-frying the filling, you put it in a tortilla and make a quesadilla.
