Very quick. I did make some changes - the Knorr Fiesta Side I had was the Queso cheese. I used half a can of diced tomatoes instead of an actual tomato. I doubled the corn instead of black beans. But it was very good. I think what I liked most was how quick and easy it came together - all in one pot! Read More

Hubby really liked it I did use Goya yellow rice because the Knorr is more pasta than rice. Next time I might heat it up a little either with hotter enchilada sauce or some chopped green chilies or jalapeños. Really good as is but I see a lot of possiblities for adding more heat or even more veggies. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

This is better than I thought! I made slight changes due to what I had on hand: taco sauce instead of enchilada sauce and white rice instead of Spanish rice. And I seasoned the chicken with cumin while cooking it. I will be making this again. Read More

I added rotel instead of the tomato (to save time and add a little more oomph). My hubby loved it. We will definitely be making this again. Read More
