Reviews for Tex-Mex Chicken with Black Beans & Rice
"This is phenomenal! I modify it just a bit and use chicken breasts, as we prefer white meat. And, I double the soups so it makes extra sauce and I add the black beans into the cooker. It's become 1 of my husband's favorite dishes and makes great leftovers!"
"This was good. I thought it would be spicier but it t was quite mild, especially considering I used Rotel. Sauce was thin even after adding sour cream. I was expecting something a bit thicker. Was that the case for everyone? Next time I may add more spice and cook down the sauce to a thicker consistency."
"It was spicy and had a lot of flavor. I didn't use the chips and I used two cans of Rotel for tomatoes. I will be making this one again."
"The chicken was tender & juicy and the dish was spicy and flavorful. I actually cooked canned pinto and kidney beans with the chicken and it turned out wonderful."
"This was so good to come home to after a long day of work and running the kids around, needless to say it was all gone no leftovers."
