After reading other reviews I knew this recipe was in need of flavor so I used Mrs. Dash's Southwest Chipotle seasoning on my chicken. I also added onion and cilantro to the beans, tomatoes, and corn. Since this recipe has southwest flavor going on I put it on flour tortillas and sprinkled a little mexican cheese on top. It was delicious!! My husband loved it and there were still left overs for the next day. I know this recipe will be made frequently at our house. Yum.
Definitely a little bland-could use some fresh cilantro and green chiles to spice it up.
A good quick and simple meal. I used a 7 oz. box of small shell pasta. I used triple the amount of pepper sauce & worchestshire added about 2 tsp. of catalina salad dressing and a sprinkle of garlic salt. Also used diced tomato with bell pepper. I think spanish style stewed tomatoes would give it more flavor. I served it with avocado.
Very quick and tastey recipe! I took the advice of one of the reviewers and added green peppers to the ingredients. First, I sauteed garlic and onion, added diced green pepper, and then proceeded on with the rest of the recipe as written above. In addition to the stewed tomatoes, I also added 2 tablespoons of tomato paste to thicken the sauce mixture.
This is a good recipe with alterations. People are right when they say it's a little tasteless. But that's easily fixed. First of all, I used very sweet corn. I also added a bit of cumin and served it (without pasta) in tortillas with fresh salsa.
Didnt care for this one. Dont waste your time making this. No flavor,and I followed the recipe exactly. Hot or cold it's no good. I drenched it in hot sause and still nothing. Also the recipe makes about 3 lbs of this stuff. I cant give the stuff away! BLAH!!
I made this with half the amount of noodles and twice the amount of corn (who doesn't love sweet corn from the summer). It kind of came out as a chili. When I tried it again with the correct amount of noodles, they took over the meal and took out some of the rich flavor. Definitely try it with less noodles.
I loved this meal. It was quick and easy and called for basic normally stocked ingredients. It tasted great. and was filling too.
