"Delicious... I made it once as is with chicken and it was great, but the second time around I substituted turkey kielbasa for the chicken and it made the dish even better! The key is using a salsa that you really like."

"Per other reviews, I didn't use as much onion and added a full packet of taco seasoning, but this was really good! It had lots of flavor and just the right amount of spice."

"When I first came across this recipe, I thought that the fusion of chicken Alfredo and Mexican was a bit strange, but it looked so good! I loved how it was creamy, but still had some kick to it. I added green chilies and loved them in there. Now my apartment smells like my dinner!"
