    I walked into the house after work and the aroma from this dish punched me in the face. My taste buds instantly put on sombreros and the party began. Once I tasted it, they locked hands and began dancing "the Mexican hat dance. - 3/9/11

    I did not expect this to be that good, but it is really yummy. I took the chicken out and added one cup of brown rice, then set the chicken back onto the top. The rice absorbed the sauce, very good. - 2/9/09

    I am thinking that the sodium count is a misprint. It has to be. No single food can have that much salt in it unless you add a whole box!No way it could be eaten with that much sodium in here. So, maybe someone should re figure.

    Great meal. We are having it tonight. - 4/5/12

    My husband and I liked this. We didn't end up shredding the chicken for our first serving and then used the sauce for our rice. We are planning on putting the leftovers in a pocket pita for lunch. - 1/15/10

    This was pretty good. My husband liked it. I decided to make it at the last minute, so I seared 3 large chicken breast in a dutch oven over med heat then added the ingredients. I pulled apart the chicken right away to help it cook faster and let it simmer for about 10 -15 min. - 4/12/12

    I made this last night with fresh chicken, only had to cook it on low for 5 hours. It was delicious. I didn't stir the sour cream in until I was ready to eat it, as it was a batch meal for lunches all week. Re-heated it this afternoon, stirred in sour cream, perfect. This is a keeper. Thanks! - 1/10/11

  • I wonder how much the sodium would decrease if I used the "Heart Healthy/Reduced Sodium" condensed soup and lower sodium taco seasoning? I am going to try it tomorrow and see. I also purchase my meat from a local butcher that does NOT add sodium to his products. - 1/26/13

  • Suggestions for reducing sodium: Low sodium soup and lower sodium taco seasoning. It may be a different brand of seasoning, but will still do the trick. It was super easy and very tasty! - 3/11/12

  • This was AWESOME! I added a half can of water too, and I cooked it for 10 hours. I didn't ruin it at all! The chicken was pretty overcooked, but it was still good. We think it would be a good dip too! Oh, I used a pound of chicken. Gonna use 1.5 lbs next time, it may thicken a bit. - 4/15/11

  • I put it in a tortilla and it was very delicious. Good for a change it up sort of thing, not sure if I'll keep it in the 'rotation' only because I'm not really sure what to make WITH it. Rice is a so so for my family, so will have to think on it. Thanks for sharing! - 4/4/11

  • This is wonderful. Even my two kids loved it and they are fussy eaters. Next time I am going to use a bit less of the taco packet as that seemed a bit too much and double it to freeze some. Hope it freezes well. I served it over brown rice with a side salad. Cooked on low for 6 to 7 hours. - 3/29/10

    Reply from PRINCESSANNIE12 (10/23/08)
    I have made this w/o the sour cream and only half a can of condensed soup. Making it that way will lower the cholesterol. It still tastes really good!
