FAQs and Kylee’s notes

  • Use pre-cooked shredded chicken in place of raw, you won’t need to cook it as long as if you were using raw.
  • If you like things spicy, add some crushed red pepper flakes to the chicken when you add the cumin/coriander. Maybe a pinch of cayenne in the sauce.
  • Add a can of black beans – boost the protein content!
  • Add a little cheese to the sauce with the chilies. Because cheese is awesome.
