This dish is AMAZING with a few changes! First off, don't use out of the bag taco seasoning. Instead, make your own! I use the following mix: 1 teaspoon paprika, 2 teaspoons ground cumin, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon oregano, 2 teaspoons garlic powder. Secondly, pound the breasts so they're relatively flat- this gives a better spice to chicken flavor ratio, and prevents you from getting the thicker chunks of chicken that are bland. It also helps even cooking. Don't just "sprinkle it on"- rub the spices on both sides of the chicken! I rub it on once side, place that side face down in the pan (which I spray with cooking spray before hand), then when they're all in the pan go and season and rub the other sides. Latly, use a shredded mexican cheese mix blend (also called nacho/taco mix) instead of cheddar cheese. We love this so much, I double the recipe and use a 9x12 to bake all of it. I always serve this with the Spanish Rice II recipe from this site- check out my review on that recipe for great alterations for the best outcome. Bland? Absolutely NOT! You don't even need the sour cream! I serve this to people and they RAVE about it! Give the changes a try- you won't be disappointed!
