green chile cheese sauce

Well, this is what I ate last night.  Chicken fajitas with a green chile cheese sauce that I whipped up on a whim. It’s a good thing I noted what I made the sauce with- because now y’all can make it, too.

I ended up making fajitas because I got a coupon for some free Tyson grilled and ready chicken. And, there was no way we were going to grill our own chicken since it was rainy. Grilling in the rain is lame.

Anyway, dinner ended up taking 10 minutes to make. Take that- 20 minute meal people! But, let’s face it: there is no true 20 or 10 minute meal. It’s the whole clean up process. Nobody factors in cleaning up  the meal.

Wait- is PB&J a meal? Maybe. I stand corrected.

Back to it:

To make these, this is what your kitchen will look like.

This is what your skillet will look like…

And, this is the “magic” sauce.

Mmm-Hmmm you guessed it: That’s what your saucepan will look like. 😉

And this is your kitchen adventures on a plate.
