    I made this tonight and put it over romaine lettuce - like a taco salad. It was filling and awesome. My DH even liked it. This is definitely a keeper. The only changes I made was I used "rotel diced tomatoes" drained and rinsed and used more garlic, added cumin & paprika. Thank you - 6/19/10

    Even my kids liked this one! Easy and quick to make. We used ground turkey in place of the chicken and Rotelle Habenaro Diced Tomatoes. Great if you like it HOT! - 1/6/10

    You could save even more money by grinding the chicken yourself. You can find chicken breasts (boneless skinless) for $1.99 on sale! Then, just cut them into cubes and put in the food processor and pulse until ground. It really works! - 11/11/08

  • this recipe was eatable but that was about it. it was too bland. i had to use a little salt and my husband used tapatio. we wrapped the mixture in whole grain tortillas, but ,even with the hot sauce, he still left half on on his plate. we don't know what to do with the leftovers now :/ - 1/31/12
