1 refrigerated pie crust peach preserves Egg wash Sugar, for sprinkling
Preheat oven to350°. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough until it’s about 1/4” thick. Using a biscuit cutter, or a small glass, cut out circles.
Gather remaining dough into a round, roll it out to the same thickness and cut out circles again. Spoon a small amount of peach preserves into the centers of half of the pie dough circles.
Brush egg wash around the perimeter of the dough. Place the remaining pie dough circles directly on top of the peach-topped circles. Press down gently then use a fork to crimp the edges and seal the pie pops.
Bake until the crust is golden, about 12 to 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350º. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden and no longer pink, 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate to let rest 5 minutes, then slice.
Add onion to skillet and season with salt, cumin, and chili powder. Cook until soft, 6 minutes. Add tomatoes and stir until combined, then add black beans, corn, and green chilis.
Return cooked diced chicken to skillet and stir to combine. Simmer until thick, 15 minutes.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl and layer half the Fritos on the bottom of skillet. Top with the chicken mixture, then sprinkle with cheddar, Monterey Jack, and remaining Fritos.
Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, 10 minutes.
