    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

    Easy and delicious. I served mine with a tex mex style salad. Romaine, tomatoes, peppers, avacoda, corn black beans etc. Toasted a corn tortilla that I cut into strips was so tasty! - 8/18/10

    I made this last night and it was soooooo good. I actually cooked it in my crock pot though.
    Froze left overs.
    And the sauce tastes great on a baked potato!!

    This sounds fantastic! Someone has posted a recipe for a taco seasoning here in SparkRecipes that you can use instead of the packaged one. It has little or no salt, I can't remember which. - 6/5/09

    Sounds great and I think I'll try it this weekend since I think I have all the ingredients! I'll probably make it with added chopped zuccini and whole wheat pasta since I have that too. - 6/5/09

    I made this on the crockpot. I sprinkled the taco seasoning on top (only half pkg) and added salsa to cook. Before serving I put each breast on a plate then mixed the sour cream w/salsa and spooned over chicken. Very good, but still a little salty. I am a little worried about the sodium content. - 2/3/09

    The taco seasoning made it a little bit salty for my husband and I - as we don't use a lot of salt, but otherwise it was FANTASTIC! Def. having again! - 5/12/08

    I used chipotle salsa and it was fabulous. FYI If you add veggies, saute them and add them in the end. They made the sauce to watery if you cook them in there. I have made this recipe several times! - 1/30/08

    I made this recipe tonight and it was delicious! Will definitely be making this again. Instead of mushroom soup I used Campbell's Chicken Verde soup (which is spicy) and added some dried cilantro. - 6/25/07
