Recipe by HokiesMom

My mom gave me this recipe that she "adopted" and then adjusted. I've named it after her since she did all the taste testing until it was just right.

This is so yummy and it's good for you too! I cut the recipe in half cuz there is only 2 of us and it worked great. I used a rotisserie chicken. This made it nice and easy. We loved the flavor, the only thing besides a bit of salt that was missing was some heat. Next time I think I would replace the can green chilies with some fresh chopped jalapeno's. We like things HOT! Please tell your Mom that she has developed an excellent recipe. Thanks for posting it. :)
