  • 2 cups chicken shredded
  • 1.5 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1.5 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • In a bowl mix together chicken, cheese, and spices.
