Sort By :
"Great recipe! I was out of salsa so I used green enchilada sauce instead and I used a whole packet of taco seasoning. Whole family loved it!!"
"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!"
"We really liked this dish! I have a friend who thinks everything is hot including salsa so we put sour cream on top and she even thought it was delicious! I was out of milk so I used buttermilk."
"This recipe is a new favorite in our house. I agree with other reviewers and will increase the amount of taco seasoning next time but it was still delicious."
"I made this dish for my family and everyone loved it! Now, it is a favorite of my sisters and she makes it for her friends and family. I made it exactly as stated. Makes yummy leftovers for lunch the next day!"
