I hope everyone had a great weekend!  If you have a case of the Mondays -- like me -- hopefully today's featured recipe for two will give you something to look forward to tonight.  It's all of the delights of nachos baked into a creamy, comforting casserole.  Need I say more?

Make this dinner last night. Really liked it!!! It is a dinner that you can make into leftovers for tomorrow for lunch. If you don't like heavy meals this would be perfect for you. After eating, you are full without the overstuffed feeling.

This way awesome. My husband and I had it for dinner last night and he loved it. I will say the chips got a little soggy when I took it for lunch today but other than that, no complaints. Its great.

You can definitely use chicken breast. I would boil it (approximately 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken) and then shred it with a fork once it is cooked through. I use rotisserie chicken mainly because it's a short cut. Good luck!
