  1. I made this recipe last January and LOVED IT! I used a can of Rotel Tomatoes instead of salsa because it's what I had on-hand at the time. The Rotel gave it a spicy twist which I enjoy. Somehow I misplaced your recipe and when I went to print it again, I had the most difficult time trying to find it! FINALLY persistance paid off. Thank you!
  2. This makes a delicious meal with very little prep work. The onion was increased to 1/2 cup and a can of veggie broth was used, as I was out of chicken. I opened a jar of Recipe #9272 that I made last year to use. In the last step, I cooked as directed until the last 10 minutes, when I took the lid off and stirred every 5 minutes so it would not stick. I will make this again. Made for *Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup 2009* game
  3. Really enjoyed this dish. Very easy to prepare and delicious to boot. Was prepared a little bit to add additional salsa. Other than that, prepared as directed. Used as part of a Mexican feast last night. Thnx for posting, bethF. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
  4. My boyfriend and I loved this recipe! I made it vegetarian by using Morningstar chicken strips and vegetable broth. I also did not use the cumin. When it was done, it was a bit dry and the rice was undercooked - but I just let it cook longer and I also added more salsa when it was done and it tasted great!!
  5. My family really loved this recipe! The only thing I did different was to add salt & pepper when I was cooking the chicken, and I added one cup of salsa (instead of 1/2 cup). The salsa I used was Archer Farms (Target stores) Tequila Lime Salsa. It was so quick and easy to prepare. I will definitely use this recipe regularly! Thanks for sharing!


I'm a busy mom with 5 children. I enjoy cooking and baking. This year I learned to bake wonderful bread using the book Artizan Bread in 5 minutes a day which I highly recommend. I would certainly cook more interesting food if my kids would eat it. I love finding recipes online and will post family friendly recipes.
