Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty disappointing. Pretty disappointing. First of all, it's a very high calorie, high fat and carb meal, so I was ready to splurge, but it wasn't worth it. Something is definitely missing. It was fine, that's all. Next time I'm taking out the corn and adding black beans and green chiles. I did use whole wheat pasta, but am going with no pasta and will put it in a whole wheat tortilla. Ok, that is a totally different recipe. This had no zing or great flavor. It's an expensive product for what you get.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's good, not superb, but good. It's good, not superb, but good. The cream is pretty rich, more than I expected. Good flavor though. The diced tomatoes cooled off fast so with every bite you might have warm noodles/cream mixed with cold tomatoes. Didn't care for that. My 2 year old tried it and had several bites, which is a plus but we are still awaiting the husbands verdict. My guess is he will say good but not to make it again. I could go either way but I don't see us craving this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My family likes spicy food, so I substituted 2 cups medium chunky salsa for the tomatoes. My family likes spicy food, so I substituted 2 cups medium chunky salsa for the tomatoes. I also omitted the corn and substituted a can of black beans, rinsed and drained. Finally, I used Kraft 2% shredded Mexican blend cheese instead of the full-fat variety. My boys loved this recipe - I will make it again the same way. Oh - one more thing - I sprinkled the chicken with southwest seasoning before cooking it. It added a lot more flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was easy and tasty. This was easy and tasty. I seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder. I sauteed half an onion until it was slightly caramelized and then added one diced red pepper, diced jalapenos to taste, and 4 garlic cloves through a press. The rest was according to the recipe's instructions. I chose low carb Dreamfield's penne for the pasta. I browned the cheese under the broiler until it was nice and browned. This was quite rich.

The whole family enjoyed it and I can't wait to try the other flavors. Reading the other rater's reviews, I will try it with Rotel next time for a spicier kick. Very good and the coupon you all offered for a $1 off made it very affordable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was delish! This was delish! I did not have any green peppers so I just left them out. I used a can of Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes as that is what I had on hand. It had a bit of zip to it but not too much. Overall, it was great! I will be making this one again!
