You may use any cooked chicken for this or omit it if you prefer a meatless snack.

This is a really tasty snack. I think it could use some more seasonings, but probably because I don't eat salsa (icky onions). I made my own pie crust as I can't stand store-bought ones. This would be good with black beans too. Thanks for sharing.
