5 stars for giving me an awesome idea! I think chili powder with just salt, and pepper is too plain. There's a ground turkey I make where I add a whole mess of spices, including dried oregano, cumin, tumeric, garlic, and onion powder, and garlic salt. I rubbed all that including the chili powder, salt and pepper, and it was amazzzinnnggg. Didn't make the salsa the recipe says. Just made a basic one with tomatoes, red onion, yellow bell pepper, lime juice, and some cilantro. Served it with some brown rice and avocado slices!!

This was a great recipe for a new mom to make. I have a two week old baby, husband was still working and mom was napping. I was still able to put this together easily and it was delicious. I added cumin to the spice blend and a tiny bit of cayenne pepper. Delicious. Had to simmer the chicken a little longer to get them cooked through.

Excellent dish! Instead of rubbing my chicken with the seasoning, I rubbed it with taco seasoning. Oh, I also used chicken tenders instead. The dish was very pretty and tasty. Hubby said I could have made it without the chicken and it still would have been great. Next I plan to cut chicken up in bit sized pieces after it has been cooked, then through the beans/corn/salsa mixture on top and toss it.
