Southwestern Chicken Poppers
Food is more than just to support our bodies for energy. Food is for sharing a good company and to connect with people.
I find that deliciousness can be created within a few minutes. It does count when we are pressed for time or short in some ingredients. These Southwestern Chicken Poppers are easy to make and use the simple ingredients from our pantries. Feel free to experiment with taste, spices and herbs – make it your own recipe you and your company will enjoy and ask for more!
Bean, spinach, peppers – all have amazing properties to feed our bodies with fiber and phytonutrients. These poppers can be prepared ahead of a party and frozen for future. I make them in big quantities and freeze to quickly pop into the oven and make a snack out of it!
