Let's Make It
Mix lime juice and 2 Tbsp. oil until blended. Drizzle over chicken in shallow dish. Refrigerate 20 min.
Heat grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from lime juice mixture; discard lime juice mixture. Brush both sides of onions evenly with remaining oil.
Grill chicken and onions 10 min. or until onions are tender, turning onions after 5 min. Remove onions from grill. Turn chicken; brush with 2 Tbsp. verde salsa. Grill 3 to 5 min. or until done (165ºF).
Chop onions and chicken coarsely. Place chicken in medium bowl; toss with remaining verde salsa.
Spread chips onto bottom of disposable 13x9-inch foil pan sprayed with cooking spray; top with chicken mixture, onions, jalapeños and cheese. Cover. Place pan on grill grate; grill 3 to 5 min. or until cheese is melted.
Cut mini bell peppers in half; remove and discard seeds. Use instead of the tortilla chips.
Substitute KRAFT Zesty Lime Vinaigrette Dressing for the lime juice mixture.
For milder flavor, prepare using KRAFT Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, and substituting 1 can (4 oz.) drained chopped green chiles for the chopped pickled jalapeño slices.
