    I was skeptical about this recipe but I made it anyway, It is delicious. I used low sodium chicken broth and I used broth in place of 1/2 the water it calls for. I also used 1 cup of pace medium salsa. I can not get over how good it is. very tasty

    Rather bland. Loved the ease of prep, but it needs more seasonings. Will use again, but I will add pepper to the cumin and garlic, and add more of the picante.

    I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Also, I used half a teaspoon of garlic salt instead of an eighth of a teaspoon of garlic powder. For frozen vegetables, I used peas and carrots. It's a very good recipe, which I'll continue to use.

    Super easy recipe. The only thing I did differently was by mistake I put the entire jar of picante sauce in the pan rather than the half cup. I just cut back on the water. Also I used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegtable oil. I came out great. Even better the next day. I will definitly make this again, but, I'll omit the water all together.
