Chicken Fajita Pie

I found this recipe on My Biscuits are Burning blog. I receive her emails whenever she posts a new recipe and this was on a there a couple weeks ago. I thought it looked really good. This is another one that Phil really liked and I just kind of liked. I used leftover smoked chicken that I had shredded up and frozen from a couple of weeks ago. I do not think it was the right chicken for this recipe. Also I think next time I would use some fajita seasoning on the chicken. I didn't not like this recipe I think I just didn't like the way the smoked chicken tasted in it. Phil really liked it though, but he also agreed that we should use regular chicken next time. I thought it was a little strange that there was a whole cup of flour in it. But it came out really nice. I thought it might taste like a quiche, but not really. I bet you can't guess which half is Phil's? haha
