Jerk Chicken Nachos, PC recipe

This is one of our favorite quicker -type meals! Full of flavor and quite nice on a dreary day when you're looking forward to summer! I also add a clove of garlic to the peppers for extra goodness!

My kids really don't care for the pepper mix but they chose that over salad! :)

I had a huge bed of lettuce under mine and added avacado! Exquisite!
