"This was very good! I used some leftover grilled chicken, just heated it up in the pina colada mix and added more olives - a combination of Greek olives and black. Was very good. Will definitely make this again."

"I made this on new year's eve, and it was a huge success! I didn't have the pina colada mix, so I used thawed coconut ice cream instead, and I sprinkled macadamia nuts on top for a finishing touch."
