This ended up being very good but it needed some help. I cooked two chicken breasts instead of using a rotisserie chicken. I seasoned the chicken with McCormick Southwest Seasoning (a new blend from the gourmet collection). I followed the recipe as indicated but found the dish to be bland. I loved the seasoning that I used in the chicken so I went ahead and added that same seasoning to the pasta dish until it tasted right, probably about 2 teaspoons. I garnished with avocado, tomatoes, chives, red onions and strips of baked corn tortillas.
Made this with ground turkey instead of chicken. Thought the flavor was OK...a bit bland...but easy and quick weeknight meal.
Good, easy and quick. Used hot diced green chiles in place of regular diced green chiles. Garnished with diced tomatoes.
My family really liked this, it was simple and quick. Didn't change one thing. And didn't have any left at all. I guess this made my family super happy!
This was a good, quick and easy meal that would be great on a weeknight. I used penne pasta because that is what I had on hand. Since I didn't have taco flavored cheese I used shredded cheddar and about a tablespoon of taco seasoning.
DELICIOUS and so easy to make, especially for a weeknight dinner. Will definitely be making this one again!!
I really have to admit I went into this recipe not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised! Of course I tweaked it to my tastes. I didn't have any cooked chicken so I used chicken tenderloins and pan fried them with taco seasoning. I then added the Progresso Starter and the 2 T of chopped green chilies (didn't want to use a whole can!) and boiled it a bit to thicken the sauce. I was really afraid of it being more like soup so I only added about 2/3 of the can of Starter. Then added the cooked mini penne. Stirred that up and grated some colby cheese on top, topped with chopped tomatoes. I am pleased with this recipe and may be making it again.
We really enjoyed this. I followed the recipe and added some red pepper, tomato, and chips to garnish.
