    This was super yummy and is going to be a regular on my menu planning. I also added a can of corn! YUM-O! This week I am out of corn but am going to try black beans! =0) Should do great! Add a salad and you are good to go! Thanks! - 7/7/08

  • Good
    I substitued pork loin chops for the chicken, and added more rice. My husband really liked it...I thought it was O.K. - 3/19/07
