This has to be one of my quickest-to-fix low carb recipes! If you are at all familiar with my blog, you know I have recently became obsessed with philly cheesesteak variations and this is basically one more version. Not only does this Mexican chicken recipe come together in a snap, it has a flavor the whole family will love. Serve this cheesy, satisfying dish loaded up in bowls for your low carb eaters and offer hoagies or tortillas for everyone else.
Above pic shows the first step in preparing recipe, sautéing the peppers, onions and mushrooms. Be sure to cook the veggies long enough so they become tender or to the doneness you prefer.
