This was a tasty, simple dish. I frequently have frozen shredded chicken on hand to go into enchiladas...but this is an even quicker, easier meal. However, like another reviewer I would have liked a little more flavor, either sauteed onions or peppers, instead of just relying on the salsa for all the flavor.
This is a nice little recipe and very quick if you have leftover chicken. I cut it back to one serving and really enjoyed it. I used sour cream and salsa on the side which added more flavour. I think some peppers thrown in would be nice. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PRMR.
