Necessity may be the mother of invention but a near empty fridge is the mother of this meal :) Cook time = Prep time

This is a good recipe to do when we have leftover chicken and don't know what to eat. It's done in just a few minutes. Next time DH asked me to put the salsa before the cheese. Thanks RaeMay :) Made for Cookbook tag game
