Expert Tips

  • Customize! Top servings with your favorite Mexican topping--chopped tomatoes, avocados, green onions and ripe olives.
  • To get cooked chicken the easy way, pick up rotisserie chicken. Remove meat from bones, cut it up and use immediately or place in a storage container. Store it in your freezer or refrigerator for later use. An average bird is about 2 pounds and yields 3 cups of cut-up meat.
