2lbs cooked/shredded chicken breast
6oz shredded Mexican blend cheese
3oz diced yellow onion
4 jalapeños (sliced, about 3oz total)
7oz Philadelphia Jalapeño cream cheese
1 tablespoon chili powder
An undetermined (plentiful) amount of sea salt and garlic powder
Crispy bacon pieces (I used 3 slices, use more if you dig on bacon more than I do)
A bunch of fresh green onion to sprinkle on top before serving!
Whippin’ it up
Preheat the oven to 350.
Sautée the onion and jalapeño on the stovetop with a small splash of the oil of your choice until they are cooked and soft
Mix onion and jalapeño in a huge bowl with the chicken, cheese, cream cheese, and spices until it is thoroughly mixed (it takes a bit of you don’t let the cream cheese soften).
Add this mixture to a greased 9×11 casserole dish and sprinkle the crispy bacon pieces all over the top.
Pop it in the oven and let it cook for 25-30 minutes.
Take it out, sprinkle with diced green onion (optional), serve.
It is excellent with ranch or blue cheese drizzled on top.
I got 6 servings out of it, it is about 400 calories (high protein ) and 5g net carbs a serving.
