Tried this for lunch today and it was a big hit! Great recipe

I used a rotisserie chicken from Costco and sprinkled the chopped up pieces with cumin, black pepper, and red pepper. I used the larger can of green chillies too. Other than that, I followed the recipe and served with lettuce, avocado and fresh salsa. Easy. Very filling. Makes a lot. Everyone loved it.

The whole family liked it! That's unusual. I don't know what kind of green peppers I was supposed to use (fresh or canned?) but I used the canned Ortega green peppers (7 oz) and it came out great.
