I tried this recipe and thought it was a little bland. However, when I took the cold leftovers and combined with fresh spinach, garbanzo beans, and shredded cheese, it made a great salad. If I made this recipe again I would probably up the amount of pizza and hot sauce and maybe throw in some spices to add more flavor.

This was absolutely delicious!! Since one of the previous reviews stated that the chicken was a little bland, i added a packet of taco seasoning! This was perfect! The other thing i did differently was I shredded the chicken after 6-7 hrs and let it simmer for 1 extra hour so that it could absorb more of the flavors. This will be something I will be serving at home more often.

I wanted to keep the theme of "mexican" so I swapped out pizza sauce for enchilada sauce. I served these sandwiches with shredded lettuce. chopped tomato and the shredded cheese. The boys thought this was a great dinner! Great spin on our usual mexican themed dinner night.

As written this recipe would be bland. I took the advice of others before me and added additional seasoning. Salt, onion and garlic powder, chili powder and cilantro, and added some red hot sauce into the mixture. You would think with all of the added seasoning it would be strong, but I still felt like it was missing something. I think I will attempt again but try the taco seasoning packet that another reviewer used. I believe this recipe has potential with the additional add ins.

quick and easy "on the way out the door" recipe, I think it made more like 8 large servings. I served with sautéed onions and peppers. The guys ate theirs as sandwiches and I just I put mine in a bowl without the bread to cut the calories and carbs. Great recipe for a busy day or when everyone gets home for dinner at a different time.
