"Awesome! easy! We used medium salsa and it was quite a kick! Instead of serving this on a bed of rice, we put it on tortillas and basically had chicken tacos, so that was kind of fun. We ate the rice on the side. I also was out of frozen corn, so I used frozen peas. I think any veggie would probably work. Maybe next time I'll make it with mild salsa cause it was really hot! But good!"
