    I adjusted to an 8 oz jar of Medium heat picante, 2 cups chicken broth, can of black beans instead of corn & added brown rice & cumin/taco seasoning. Pretty good & had a little kick to it

  • I revamped this

    I used: two cans of Rotel w/ green chilis, 1/2 can of tomato pastes, 2 cans of corn, 4 Jalapeño slies, 1tbsp of Cumin, 1/4 cup onion dehydrated, 1 can of chicken, 1/2 tsp. Of Onion and garlic powder, Dash of pepper, 3 cups of chicken broth. Some water. The juice were so tasty. We really enjoyed it. But next time I'll use leftover chicken instead of can.I had to tweak this recipe being from south, flavors where it's at! Not spice, flavor. This recipe is a one pot wonder.Great for quick dinner.

  • This recipe is easy and fast to fix.

    I added onions and a can of chili's for extra spice.

    It still seemed watery and lacks something I can't put my finger on

    If I make this recipe again, I will use baked, cut up chicken tenders for texture and better flavor instead of the canned white chunk chicken breast.

  • Super fast and super yummy!
