    My husband who does not like "diet food" loved this! My kids ate and ate....Fabulous! This will definately be a staple in our diet...(I did however omit the taco seasoning and used garlic, cumin, paprika and chili instead as I have to watch my sodium) - 6/29/07

    I make this recipe very often in the crock pot. I've used chicken breasts before and thought the thighs were MUCH better. I use my own taco seasoning and homemade salsa. Sometimes I'll also add a can of black beans about an hour before we eat. Thanks for submitting this! - 5/14/10

    this is the best spanish chicken style recipe I have ever came across, it comes out so tender that you can cut it with a fork. The flavors that come together with the sour cream and salsa just blows my hubby's mind away. - 5/13/11

    Love this! It's a little spicy for my 6 year old, but it's a great recipe for dinner and then leftovers for lunch the next few days. The sour cream makes it seem decadent far beyond the calorie count would suggest. Thanks!! - 3/17/13

    This was amazing. I made it tonight, with just a little cheddar cheese sprinkled on top, served with brown rice and salad greens topped with salsa. My husband looked at me and asked, "this is healthy?!" Definitely will be making again! - 3/11/12
