Tex Mex Chicken & Veggies
Yummy! Delicious meal! Corn, black beans and zucchini worked well together with the taco seasoning and veggies! I love sprinkling Cayenne Pepper on my veggies when sautéing them for a little kick! It's just enough for people to wonder "what is that" It's your secret ingredient
The Mexican cheese was the perfect topping! Ooey Gooey cheese, Yum!
One skillet recipe! Quick and easy!
