    Yum! Made it less spicy on account of the kids, but will definitely be adding some kick on my portions! Quick and easy to boot. - 12/12/11

    Very Good
    We really liked this. I cooked my chicken in the crock pot beforehand so that I could shred it verses having chunks and then continued with the rest of the recipe. Didn't use oil, substituted non stick spray to cut down on fat. Will make again! - 2/12/09

    Oh my stars! This is an amazing dish! If you've ever had the Southwest Eggrolls from Chili's or Dick Clark's ... THESE are BETTER and WAY healthier! You've got to try these!!!! It's become one of our favorite quick meals. - 12/22/08

    Very good and easy! I used lettuce leaves as wraps instead of tortillas and it was very tasty. I used the left overs in a salad the next day with salsa--also yummy :) - 11/5/08
