      This turned out to be a very quick easy dinner tonight. It didn't take very long to cook as I used turkey breast steaks instead of chicken. I was also very late starting dinner tonight so I didn't measure just guessed quantities but it still worked out very well - probably had quite a bit more cheese, which I love. I will be making this again. Thank you Bunkie for a great recipe.

      Yummy chicken Bunkie. I had done this before with the salsa and cheese but the sour cream gives it a little something extra. A great quickie dinner for after work.

      Let's try this again. It was more "easy" than "picante", maybe because I used medium salsa (next time I'll use more spicy salsa). Excellent. Easy and super quick to make.
