Reviews forChicken Burrito Skillet
"I made this for the first time tonight, following the recipe exactly. I will make again, but with several changes to the recipe. First off, I like a lot more chili powder and am not fond of cumin, so I will eliminate the cumin and increase the chili powder to 1 1/2 teaspoon. Also, I like more salt and pepper so will increase both a bit. I think that instead of using onion powder I would like to add finely chopped fresh onion to the recipe and fresh diced tomatoes to replace the canned. Another suggestion is to use a black bean with some southwest or Mexican seasoning instead of a plain black bean variety. When I redo it, I will update this review to give exact measurements for the changed ingredients."
"Really enjoyed this website and being able to enter recipes into folders of my choice, but now I can't do that anymore. The website won't let me enter the recipes."
"I made this tonight for supper.It was very good, and easy, too!"
"Very good, however, if not on a salt restricted diet I would definetly add some salt or use regular chicken broth instead of reduced-sodium. Since I like onions in a recipe like this I added 1/2 medium diced onion and cooked in pan while browning the rice. This was a quick and easy recipe that I will make again. I will also try this recipe with ground beef instead of chicken."
"It was okay. I added some re fried beans and it perked it up."
