This Southwest Chicken is speedy, simple to make, and LOADED with heavenly flavors. Ideal for when you need a speedy and simple supper, this healthy feast is loaded up with delicate chicken, southwest seasonings, dark beans, corn, fiery green chiles, tart cilantro and obviously a lot of delightful colby jack cheddar! Since it is made across the board dish, it meets up quick and makes for simple tidy up as well!

This formula is one that I have had blending for a long while. It takes the majority of the flavors we grew up with and figured out how to adore as we were figuring out how to walk, and changes them into a straightforward simple to make supper that you will need to return to consistently!

Southwest Chicken is just about impeccable all alone, however I typically prefer to combine it with a couple of side dishes to truly balance the dinner and cause it to go far. Here are a portion of my preferred approaches to serve this dish.
