We loved it! My DH told me to make this again. The prep time is a little longer than 10 minutes. I cheated and used a rotisserie chicken. I increased the garlic and would increase it even more next time. I will put some "heat" into next time. Possibly, some jalapenoes, can of rotel tomatoes or green chilies. This was super good and will make again. PAC Fall 2009.
