    My 8-year-old son is super picky, but he had 3 helpings of this for dinner last night. I thought it was great, too! We didn't have picante sauce on hand so we used mild salsa and I really loved it. Definitely going to make this again.

    I made this recipe exactly as written and it was inedible for my and my kids tastes. Gross was the only way to describe this. There are no suggestions to make it even worth trying to make again.

  • Really good

    This recipe came together very quickly. I actually used canned chicken, added a little extra cheddar cheese and a bit of sour cream to make it a little creamier. Big hit at my home and one I will be sure to make again. I used cavatappi instead of the rotini because it is what I had on hand. Great dinner to make from cupboard staples!
