      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

      Made this for lunch. It was quick and easy to make. I think I would have liked this a bit better if my chicken would have been seasoned with taco seasoning other then just grilled chicken. I added the salsa and cooked it with the chicken and then topped with cheese and melted that. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
