1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 cups chopped cooked chicken or turkey
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chile peppers*
3 tablespoons butter or margarine

Cooking Directions:

  1. In large saucepan, cook onion and green pepper in the 2 tablespoons butter or margarine until tender. Combine in a bowl with chopped chicken and green chili peppers; set aside.
