2 cups cooked turkey or chicken, chopped

1 8 ounce block cream cheese

1 cup salsa verde

1 can black beans

tortilla chips

1 bag shredded Mexican style cheese -8 ounce

salsa

sour cream and chopped avocados for garnish

DSC01801Using a Kitchenaid mixer or hand mixer, blend meat, cream cheese and salsa verde until the meat is shredded.
