Quite a few people complained that this lacked flavor/was too bland. That was not the case for us! I made the following modifications: I cooked the chicken in butter with garlic salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, and a little McCormick taco seasoning. I added the cheddar cheese soup and the salsa, and blended until they had melted together. I tasted the sauce and found it was still a tiny bit on the bland side, so I added more black pepper and crushed red pepper. I made the fiesta rice with Uncle Ben's instant brown rice instead of white, and followed all of the same directions. I had to add an additional 1/2 cup of hot water at the end of the cook time to make sure the rice didn't burn and was cooked thoroughly. I added black pepper and crushed red pepper to the rice as well. These were spicy and delicious! My fiancé loved them, and ended up eating the chicken sans tortilla because the sauce was so good! Definitely a keeper! If you find yours is too bland, add your favorite spices! Stir, taste, and add some more! Cooking is an experiment...I never follow recipes exactly and they always turn out better for it! ;)
Sorry but I didn't enjoy this at all, and neither did the kids. I think I will stick to my original chicken Quesadilla recipe.
cooked chicken in crockpot with water. Used this broth for the rice. Added chedder cheese and milk to shredded chicken along with some taco seasoning. Sauted onions with oil. Added half the onions to shredded chicken. added 1 1/2 cups of rice and browned. Added chicken broth and a little extra water to equal 2 cups. added a little salsa and left un covered to be done quicker. Added chicken mixture to tortillas and bakes as directed. YUM!
My husband hates Mexican food but he loved this. It was cheesy and gooey, even the baby enjoyed it :) The rice turned out great also. Not your typical Mexican dish, but delish!!
I used a McCormick fajita seasoning packet when cooking the chicken and mixed the soup and medium heat chunky salsa with it when it was nearly all evaporated and it came out spicy and amazing.
This recipe is great, but it seems that there is something else needed in the quesadillas and I cant put my finger on what. The rice was absolutely amazing. I have fixed both twice now and will definitely be fixing it again.
more like a cheap afterschool snack for the kids not a meal for the family
This shocked me by being very simple and quick and tasty as well. My husband and children loved them and asked for them again. I do agree that (to me, at least) it seems like there's something missing.. I definitely could taste that it was mainly cheddar cheese soup making up the content of the quesadillas. I'll try maybe spicing it up more or adding some other type of sauce to it as well next time I make it. I will definitely make these again though - so quick and easy for something so enjoyable to everyone in my home. Recipes like this I hold on to!
