Reviews for Mexican Chicken and Rice
"After eating this, I scheduled an urgent and elaborate surgery that will prevent me from having a bowel movement for the next 3 months. I am jealous of the toilet that will eventually swallow the remains of this incredible meal."
"Used Chipotle salsa, extra chili powder and cumin. DELICIOUS, fast & easy with things usually on hand! Thanks!"
"Very boring. It's good enough to cook and eat if you're tired or lazy, but nothing really impressive at all."
"We found this dish to be okay, but nothing spectacular! Sorry. Won't make again."
"Very quick and easy and very good!"
"so great and very forgiving! i didn't have the onion corn or cheese and it was still great. my guys are very picky. its gone!"
"Fast and easy and delicious!"
"So fast and easy. Even my "no casserole" teen son liked this one. It will definitely be added to our regular menu rotation.As noted by others, I used a can of Rotel instead of salsa. I also used a little less chili powder and added a bit of Chipotle Chili Powder on it. Spicy, but we like spice!"
"Picky family, especially one dish dinners. They loved it!!!"
