Very good flavor. I mixed the spices together and added to the beans. I used some leftover cooked chicken and just added it to the mix to heat through. I used half a can of corn instead of the frozen and served over rice. Very easy, with things I have on hand.

Quick and easy, delicious weeknight dinner. I didn’t make any changes and served with Mexican Rice. A definite keeper.

We loved it and sent recipe to my mom. This is a keeper, I scaled it down for one breast. I added a little onion and garlic to mine.

Delicious! I make this dish often for my family. You can adjust the spices to your taste. I like to add some cayenne to this chicken as well.

Fast and very flavorful! I used low sodium beans and hot salsa. We loved the seasoning so much I mixed up an extra batch and keep it in my spice rack.

Great quick dinner with good flavor. We added sour cream and cheese on the side and I always add bouillon to my rice. Rave reviews from the whole family. Will definitely make again.

Loved this recipe! Instead of the rice, I made a southwest chicken salad. Other than that, the only thing I added was some saut?ed onion and green peppers. Served with a cilantro lime dressing. Mmmmmm.
