We loved this! I used 2 defrosted chicken breasts and just over 1/2 pound of ground beef (chopped up from leftover burgers on our indoor grill). I uesd a whole "O-brand" jar of salsa verde to keep everything nice and moist while cooking, and it didn't yield too much extra liquid. Had tacos tonight, will try enchildas or quesadillas with the rest. Great easy meal! I love not having to measure every ingredient, just tossed it all in!
