"This was very tasty and I would make it again. However, the chicken took about 25-30 minutes to cook through after adding the other ingredients, and because it took so long, the bean/corn/salsa mixture burned to the bottom of the non-stick pan and was very dry. I'd do it differently next time. But 5 stars for flavor."

"This was delicious! Made it exactly as printed, except for the beans. I used canned brown ranch style, as that is all I had. And, we rolled it up in a flour tortilla and added some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Just spicy enough, but not too spicy. Family said this recipe is a winner! Next time, I will use the black beans, but it really isn't necessary. WONDERFUL!!!!"
