Note: This recipe is especially for kids with lactose intolerance, who need to limit or avoid dairy products.

Kids can still enjoy cheesy Mexican dishes by using lactose-free soy cheese. You'll be surprised at how well the soy cheese melts.

  • 2 6 oz. chicken breasts without skin
  • 2 oz. Jalapeno Jack soy cheese
