    Wildflour's Note:

    I LOVED this dished that a local Mexican restaurant called the "Hacienda" used to serve, until they changed chefs, and it was AWFUL! So, I went home and came up with my own, (better!), version! At least in MHO!! It's like a Mexican-Style Fettucini Alfredo. REALLY good!!

      Made this for dinner tonight and it was very tastey. I only used 2 chicken breast and it was plenty. There is definately 2 meals there for the 4 of us. It took a while to heat all the after the adding the pasta so next time i might make ahead and heat in the oven. Other then that great recipe. Thanks for the post.

      This was very very different, but in a good way. I think I'd like to serve it in a tortilla w/rice and black beans next time instead of over pasta. Thanks for posting, it's a keeper.
