Cranberry Nacho Bowls


An unexpected combination of delicious tastes. Crunchy nacho bowls are filled with succulent chicken, then sautéed with Cranberry Salsa -- a flavourful combination of spirited japapenos, crisp macintosh apples and tangy cranberries -- and topped with fresh Jalapeños, green onions, olives, cilantro and melted Monterey Jack cheese. A tangy, tantalizing appetizer.
