Chicken Ranchero

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Simply Chris

I do not remember where this recipe came from, originally it called for beef chuck. I've modified it and now make it with chicken. It's always well received at my house. You can make it mild or hot, depending on the type of salsa you choose. Serve with a salad and some warmed up tortillas.

We really didn't care for this very much. I think we just prefer tomato based mexican dishes. If you really like green chili salsa, you'll love this. Its got some kick to it too!
