    We loved this! I used 2 defrosted chicken breasts and just over 1/2 pound of ground beef (chopped up from leftover burgers on our indoor grill). I uesd a whole "O-brand" jar of salsa verde to keep everything nice and moist while cooking, and it didn't yield too much extra liquid. Had tacos tonight, will try enchildas or quesadillas with the rest. Great easy meal! I love not having to measure every ingredient, just tossed it all in!

    Very good and VERY easy and very cheap! I think the entire recipe cost me about 12 bucks. I used this filling in all kinds of stuff! Tacos, empanadas, a casserole... and I still had leftovers to freeze for more later! I couldn't find boneless, skinless at our store, so I used 5 lbs of bone-in, skin-on. It was just a little more work that way. Also, I used a dried minced bell pepper mix I buy in the spice section. Thanks so much Stacy for this recipe!

    This stuff is absolutely wonderful! It easily fed my very hungry family of 5, and gave me probably 3 more meals! I'm hiding the leftovers from the first night, as I want them all to myself :) I'll certainly be making this many many times in the future. Oh I made tacos this round, and can't wait to try a quesadilla. Mmm-mmmm.
