Southwest Chicken Stromboli Recipe

I prefer Italian food, but my brother is a big fan of Mexican cooking. I combined my preferences with his and came up with this recipe. He loved it. If you prefer a spicier flavor, just use hotter salsa. —Carly Curtin, Ellicott City, Maryland

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2012

This sandwich was delicious, it tasted like a burrito.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 23, 2012

Used a left over roasted chicken, left out the cumin-not a fan. Otherwise would not change a thing! Also delicious reheated in the oven @250 for about 18 min.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 5, 2011

I made several changes, the first of which was not using a bread machine, since I don't have one. I dissolved the yeast in the water (but at 90-110 degrees), then added the rest of the dough ingredients (except the milk powder, which I left out), and kneaded it with my mixer until smooth (around 7ish minutes). Then I sprayed with Pam and covered to let double (around 30 minutes). I also used mozzarella and cheddar instead of the Mexican blend because I wanted to use my mozzarella that I had left over. It was really tasty, and it looked really nice.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 15, 2011

This was good. I had to add water to the dough to get it to form, but it came out really crispy and with a good flavor. I enjoyed the filling as well. This was definitely big though. I didn't find there was too much filling for the amount of dough.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 1, 2011

The dough was wonderful and crisped up nicely, even without using the egg wash.

The filling was WAY TOO MUCH; we will reduce by 1/2 the next time we make it (or double the dough and make 2).

We made it vegetarian by substituting shredded cabbage and corn for the chicken.
