    Pretty good! I added shrimp, 1 pack of spicy taco seasoning AND fajita seasoning (add one with the meat, one for the veggies); instead of 2 bell peppers- 1 whole bell pepper, a poblano, 3 cayennes and 2 fresh jalapeños- and I grated pepper jack cheese that I stirred into the pasta in the end with the chicken/shrimp and veggies. Very tasty!

    Turned out REALLY good! Instead of chicken I used vegan sausage & added some Cajun seasoning.

    I ended up using more seasoning than recommended but it turned out good. I also added a little Fiesta blend cheese based on the reviews of others. My family enjoyed it

    Very tasty! It was starchier than we would have liked, so next time I’ll parboil the pasta. Definitely will make this again.

    Loved it ! It’s an awesome cheap meal. Majority of the ingredients i purchased at the dollar tree. I made a few adjustments to the recipe such as: Adding in diced feta cheese & smoked sausage. I didn’t have heavy cream so I mixed milk butter and a tad bit of sour cream and it worked like a charm! I also substituted diced tomatoes with a little bit of tomato paste from a left over meal.

    I made it without the cream and added black beans and added more seasoning to give it more flavor. Overall it was easy to make and liked by all.

    It turned out great. It was the perfect recipe to make, because I was running out of dinner ideas for the mid-week. It was just what I wanted,because of the combination of ingredients

    Turned out pretty good and was easy to make. We used old el paso fajita mix and it was alright but it probably would have been better with a homemade taco seasoning.

    portion size seemed small, added 3 cups of pasta instead and about 20oz on tomatoes, keeps its flavor just doubles the portions.
