This is a really yummy and easy to make dish. It's perfect for tossing together quickly using things we normally have on hand. We used some chicken leftover from making fajitas and the fajita seasoning really enhanced the dish. Next time we made this, I'll definitely add some fajita seasoning to the chicken before it's added. We also sprinkled some shredded cheddar cheese over the dish before serving.
