Very good, easy. We made our own taco seasoning from another recipe on allrecipes, don't think I will ever buy packaged taco seasoning again as I like being able to decrease amount of salt.
Average southwest recipe. Good flavors, but nothing spectacular.
Southwest Chicken was great! 4 stars just because the recipe really didn't go into a whole lot of detail about the rice but hey, its rice... whats there to really figure out?
Super pleased because this was a really easy dish to make that turned out tasty! Only thing I changed was the salsa, I used Chi-Chi's Salsa which was pretty darn tasty. The only problem I had was when I was tossing the seasoning mix with the chicken some of it ended up stuck to my fingers so next time I might add more to compensate for sticky fingers!
Overall was a pretty great dish, easy to prep, make, and the taste was right on! Definitely saving this recipe for a later date.
I loved this recipe! I'm definitely saving and I will make this again. Note: Makes enough food for 3 adults. If you have a large family, you may need to adjust the recipe :).
Yummy! Loved it. I didn't have any green onions or chicken thighs. I used yellow onions and boneless chicken breast and it came out great. I also cooked the onions when browning the chicken.
This was a huge hit with the family. We will be making this again. It was really good. Great flavour.
Really good dish!
Delicious and filling. Only changed two things: I used a different brand of taco seasoning and left off the cheese to accommodate a family member with a dairy allergy. (The rest of us added cheese to our plates.) Everyone went back for seconds, and none of us were actually still hungry when we did so. =D
