I make these to accommodate various food allergies in our family. Served with a simple green salad, it's a meal my family enjoys together. —Christine Schenher, Exeter, California

This was fabulous! I added mushrooms and a can of black beans to the chicken mixture, and I added some diced zucchini to the avocado salsa. I served it with regular salsa and chipotle tobasco. YUM! This will be a keeper that we will make frequently in our home.
