Easy Southwest Chicken Bake

Well, my sisters and I survived another Build Your Blog Conference!
We started this conference a couple of years ago after receiving so many emails from our readers about how to start and grow a blog. We wanted to keep the conference small and simple, but it has only continued to grow. This past weekend, with the help of The Blogger Network, we hosted over 600 people in Salt Lake City at our conference. We talked blogging, social media, and everything else in between. It was pretty incredible and we met some amazing people!

And now, we need about 24 hours to catch up on sleep. 🙂

Dinner tonight is going to be fast and easy . . . this is one of my favorite dishes to throw together in a hurry and it’s delicious.

Happy eating!
