Directions
PREHEAT oven to 400°F (200°C).

HEAT oil on medium-high heat in a large non-stick fry pan. Add garlic, onion and peppers. Sauté 5 minutes.

ADD chicken and seasonings. Cook, stirring occasionally until chicken is no longer pink, about 5 to 7 minutes.

BAKE in preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes or until crust is crisp and cheese is melted. Serve with salsa.

TIP: Add sliced hot peppers, sliced black olives or hot sauce to taste. You can also use ground beef or turkey.
