    weekend cooker's Note:

    Instead of using jalapenos, you can substitute 1 (7 ounce) can chopped green chilies. It won't be as hot. You can also substitute turkey for the chicken.

      Oh wow, this was so delicious and well received by everyone in our household, even our pickiest eater. It wasn't until I was dishing up the servings that I realized I had completely forgotten to include the green onions (oops!). And I used the more mild pepper option and used canned diced green chilies. Despite those two minor changes, this was a spectacular dish. I will definitely make this again (maybe even using jalapeno peppers for more depth of flavor). Thanks for sharing your recipe, weekend cooker.

      This recipe was ok my family is very picky and I was trying to remake a recipe that someone made at a company function however, it was not the same recipe. I used 3 chicken Breast and fresh squeezed lime juice on the chicken and then I cooked the onions, cumin, jalapeno's and garlic. I then added the soup and warmed it up in the skillet with the onions, cumin, and garlic. I then added the chicken and spinach to the mixture and followed all other directions. I personally thought it wasn't to bad but I don't think will be making it anytime soon either the family didn't particularly care for it. I was surprised however, that you couldn't taste the spinach in the recipe.

      This was good. I used 3 chicken breast that I cooked on the george forman grill. I also only used 2 jalapenos, a sliver of a palbano pepper and added some sun dried tomatoes. The flavors all came together well. Everyone liked it, I however didn't care much for the crunchy nacho chip texture. I may tweak this one a little but definately will make agian.Thanks for the change. Made for 123 Hits.
