This was a great meal. It was simple quick and easy. the only difference that I made was I added some onion and some garlic with the chicken. I would make this again for my family! Read More

So disappointed. Almost everything I ve made from All Recipes is great- this was blah. Even with extra spices it was not good. I have a family of not very picky eaters and nobody would eat this. Read More

Delicious dish. Good flavour. I had red green and yellow peppers so used 1/4 of each. Also used coloured rotini pasta. Easy to make very tasty. 4 stars. Read More

Tasty simple & easy! Few changes: added garlic & onion to chicken; added leftover homemade salsa fresh cilantro fresh squeezed lime black beans and sour cream to the sauce. Super filling and not too bad for ya either! Served over jasmine rice (pic added) because we're really not a pasta family) but next time will definitely make with the pasta! Great find! Even the teens wolfed it down! Read More

I was totally skeptical of this dish when I started making it. I had no idea how pasta and salsa were meant to go together BUT THEY ARE. This was surprisingly delicious! I used two peppers one red and one green and I think I used a little more salsa than called for but those were the only changes I made to the recipe. I did find that I needed to simmer it just a little longer than called for (I let it go for about 15 minutes) but this could just be due to the size of the chunks of pepper and chicken I was cooking. And do not forget the cheese it really makes the dish!! Can't wait to make this again! Read More

This was great I used precooked chicken & mexicorn. It was easier for me to throw everything in a casserole dish and put in the oven for 20 minutes or so. It was a great way to "hide" chicken. Husband loved it! Read More

I used two red peppers instead of one green and a homemade salsa. I did not try this myself but I heard that my family liked it--NO leftovers. This rewarms well. Read More
