  1. Cook chicken in slow cooker or bake it in the oven. You can season it with some salsa or your favorite spice. I used Chimichurri seasoning as a drink rub and a little hot salsa. I cooked the chicken for 4 hours in a slow cooker.
  2. Cook Birdseye Southwest Protein Blend in Microwave.
  3. Put 1/4 cup of the protein blends in each serving.
  4. Heat the refried beans in the microwave. I cooked it on high for 2 minutes.
  5. Add 1/4 cup of the refried beans per serving.
  6. Add 4 ounces of chicken per serving. I sliced the chicken.
  7. Add 1-2 tbsp of picante per serving.
  1. The nutrition is without sour cream and guacamole. Each serving as about 11.5 grams of fiber. It would be more if you add guacamole and sour cream.
