My friend Melissa made this fabulous dish the other night and since it was far better than my recipe, I had to have it. This is great football TV watching fare or easy dinner. Kraft has come out with some new Cream Cheeses designed for cooking. I used their Santa Fe Blend and it really added some nice flavor to the dish.
Ingredients
1 pkg of large flour tortillas
1 can of refried beans
1 large can sliced olives
1 large jar picante sauce
2 Chicken Breasts cooked and shredded or one roaster chicken light meat shredded
2-3 cups shredded cheese (mexican mix or cheddar)
8 oz. sour cream
4 oz. cream cheese
3 peppers (red, yellow, green)
