    This was really good and very easy to make. I used fresh chicken breasts, cooked them first and then used it in the recipe. It is really good the way it is but next time I would add some cumin and coriander to it to give it a more Southwest flavor. - 8/11/09

  • This was very good! I plan on making it again. I just used precooked Southwest flavored chicken instead to make the process a little faster! - 8/26/09
