1 small can Rotel tomatoes with chiles ($.69)
1 t ground cumin and garlic powder ($.10)

1 serving Salsa verde ($.50) Or use 5 oz. can of green chiles!
1/2 cup shredded cheese ($.37) Omit if dairy free!
2 cups frozen corn ($.68)

1. Place chicken breasts in 8×8 baking dish. Sprinkle with fajita seasoning. Pour salsa verde over the chicken. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes, or until chicken has cooked through.  Cooking time will vary depending on thickness of the chicken.
