    • Begin by combining the spices. Sprinkle over the chopped chicken and stir to coat.
    • Next, heat a large skillet over medium heat, spray with nonstick spray or add up to 1 tablespoon olive oil.
    • Sear the chicken in the skillet 2-3 minutes on each side until nicely browned, then add the vegetables and stir well.
    • Allow the chicken and vegetables to cook about 5 minutes more, until the onions and peppers are beginning to soften.
    • Remove the chicken and veggies from the pan and set aside.
    • Add the heavy cream, broth, cream cheese and half the cheddar cheese. Stir over medium low heat until a thick, creamy sauce forms.
    • The last step is to add the chicken to the skillet and cover with the remaining cheese. Place a lid on the skillet and let simmer over low for 6-8 minutes.
  • Garnish with your favorite taco fixing such as avocado, tomatoes, green onions or cilantro.
