Georgann Hunt | Pedernales EC

2 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken 2/3 cup salsa
1/3 cup chopped green onion
3/4 to 1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt

Queso, guacamole and/or pico de gallo, optional, for serving

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Cook’s Tip: I boil my chicken in water that has been seasoned with cumin, salt, pepper, garlic and onion. But you can use a roasted chicken from the grocery store deli.
