@Vilmsie: Thanks for your comment. Here is the order in which to layer the cast iron skillet: - First, place in the pan a layer of mashed potatoes. - Place a layer of cheese on top of the potatoes. - Place the pepper and onion medley on top of the cheese. - Place the chicken on top of the peppers and onions. - Sprinkle parsley on top of the chicken. Hope this helps! - RecipeLion Editors

Hello Crazy Mama, Chihuahua cheese (sometimes called Queso) is a soft white cow's-milk cheese of Mexican origin. You should be able to find it in most supermarkets. Thanks for the comments!
