Tips and Tidbits
This same recipe can be modified with ground beef instead of the ground chicken. Ground turkey is also an option.
In addition to the salsa you can add some enchilada sauce. Reduce the salsa by the amount of sauce you add.
You might want to add some Mexican seasonings to the salsa or sauce for more flavor.
