Mexican Chicken in Phyllo

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pattikay in L.A.

This is a fun and flavorful recipe I got off the side of a box of frozen phyllo dough. The recipe has good flavor, but is not particularly spicy, so feel free to kick up the heat to suit your tastes.

I didn't use a spicy salsa and wish I had. I would add more cheese next time and perhaps use pepper jack for additional flavor.
