    This recipe was just ok to me. I wasn't crazy about it. I love spicy foods, but this dish had too much hot spice and not enough other flavor to it if that makes any sense. Some of the rice got a bit hard too. And, yes, it could use more chicken. Other than that it was worth trying out. - 3/20/10

  • It sounds sooooo good! I was wondering if you could leave out the rice. I'm trying to watch my carbs a little closer. What do you think? - 5/11/10

  • Made this tonight; it was YUMMY! I used a little less cayenne. With that and the jalapenos it had just the right amt of heat. Needs more chicken tho. Only used one can of black beans and a full bag of frozen corn. Needs just a little more salt. Was yummy! Lots of good color to this dish, too! - 2/28/10
