Everyone loves these crave-worthy Mexican-inspired chicken recipes. And they're easy to make in the home kitchen.
"A dark, rich, complex mole recipe," says ELAINE05. "I generally shred the chicken so it will soak up the mole sauce and serve it with warmed tortillas. It is always a hit with those who like spicy foods. This recipe can be played with easily to tailor it to your own level of hotness and/or cocoa/peanut flavor."
"This soup is quick to make, flavorful, and filling," says Star Pooley. "Serve with warm corn bread or tortillas. Garnish with chopped fresh avocado, Monterey Jack cheese, crushed tortilla chips, or green onion! This also freezes well"
You'll roll up shredded chicken and cheese in corn tortillas and then cover them in a baking dish with salsa verde and cream. "Delicious," says NLHUGHESAM. "I followed the recipe given exactly and it was great. Also, it cooks up beautifully and makes a nice presentation."
"Scrumptious," says CAMILLICIOUS. "The lime made the chicken so flavorful. Topping with salsa gave it an added kick. A great way to serve boring old chicken."
"This was a hit," says SirDino. You'll saute chicken, red bell peppers, sliced jalapeno peppers, and red onions with cumin, garlic pepper, and chipotle pepper. "The fresh lime definitely sets it off. I added some Mango to the veg mix and it was great."
"Great recipe," says Sarah. "The pico de gallo is easy to make and tastes great. My husband said it was better than the quesadillas in restaurants." Pro tip: Use pre-cooked chicken and fresh veggies for an extra-quick mid-week meal.
