Super fast and tasty dinner. I used tinned tomatoes without chilies as I don't personally like it spicy, but then I put hot sauce on it for my fiancé as he loves spice! Perfect compromise! This was the perfect weeknight dinner and is really delicious!

Yum, yum, yum! I didn't even add the chicken, but this was still great. I used velveeta's whole grain rotini & cheese, lowfat shredded cheese, and light sour cream - to cut calories and squeeze some whole grains in where I could. This IS spicy, but very good. It might even be good with ground beef for a tex-mex mac & cheese. :) Thank you so much for sharing - what a great idea!!

I admit, I changed a lot here, but I wanted to thank you for the inspiration. I stuffed the chicken in large shells, and instead of the mac & cheese sauce used velvetta (omitted sour cream entirely), and smothered the lot of it with cheese. Yum. Thanks for sparking my creativity! :)

This is a great kid-friendly recipe. My son liked it a lot. Even DH that loves Kraft Dinner LOL I used plain diced tomatoes. I used fat-free sour cream and reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Very easy to do. Thanks Hope :) Made for Holiday tag

I made this recipe on 10/2/09 for mine and SO's dinner.Except for a couple of minor changes the recipe was made as written. These are the changes that were made: instead of using the chicken breast, some leftover chicken that I had in the freezer was used.And I cut the sour cream down to 1/4 cup. Also, a bit of chili powder was added.The taste was very good and creamy with a slight " kick " from the chili powder. This will be made again. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

I thought this dish was okay. I used only diced tomotoes, and tried to used canned chicken. (Perhaps the canned shredded chicken made it taste funny, but normally its not a problem in other recipes). I added mushrooms to it and that seemed to help for me, however, I don't think I will try to do it again.

This was very good. I took a shortcut and used southwest chicken strips (12 oz) and followed the recipe from Step 2. I also pulsed my Rotel tomatoes a few times before I put them in the skillet (I don't like chunks of tomato). It is spicy - which I like. If you wanted to tone down the heat you could use mild Rotel tomatoes or the Mexican Rotel. I might try the Mexican Rotel next time. This dish was quick and easy. I loved it. I will be making it again.
