    Amazing!! Super delicious! I added carrots and onion to and cheese along with the cilantro on top. Definitely going to make it again!

    If you are reading this review because you’re in search of a good recipe, run—don’t walk—to a different recipe! You have been warned. This was such a disappointment, I don’t even know where to begin. If I could give it 0 stars, I would. I was hopeful that the simple ingredients would result in (at the very least) a delicious combination of flavors. Instead, it is EXTREMELY bland and basic. I know that simple crockpot meals can taste good; unfortunately this is not one of those meals. I can’t believe it has so many 4+ star reviews! Thankfully I made this ahead of time so I can spend tomorrow doctoring this up before feeding it to anyone.

    This was awesome !!! I made jasmine rice and added cilantro and lime to the rice. I then added the chicken mixture to a flour tortilla topped with rice, cheese and crema rolled it up and my family loved it!!!! I will definitely make it again the taste was great I added red onions too!

    Really good. Added a little cumin and ancho chili powder and enhanced the flavor more

    Good flavor and was able to use for leftovers another day. Served with a salad and eliminated taco shells for a lower calorie option.

    This was really good. It is simple to make and was enough for me to eat off of several times. I served it with Mexican rice. It would probably be good on taco shells but its so good you can just eat it straight. I added a can of Campbell's condensed black bean, cumin and cilantro soup over the chicken layer and didn't used the lime or fresh cilantro. The reviews that say it is soupy are true. Definitely recommend. Also, I believe the recipe calls for the chicken to be added frozen, but mine wasn't and it turned out fine with the same cooking time.

    Super super easy to make! I didn’t add any of the extra stuff at the end (cheese, sour creams, etc.) & it was still super great!! This is definitely on our family’s dinner list now!! The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars is because it was super juicy almost soup like.

    It was very good... I added a little chicken broth to keep the chicken from drying out in the crock pot.

    A little dry, but pretty good

    Very easy to make! You definitely need to add sour cream because it was a little bland and dry

    Really good! I suggest not adding the cilantro, it didn’t really work with the flavour but otherwise great!

    Delicious!!! We made them into nachos and it was a hit! Still super yummy leftover too! Added a little extra taco seasoning and some extra cumin and salt and it did the trick!

    Delicious flavours! New family favorite. It lost a star for being so soupy, but its absolutely delicious.

    My wife said it was very good and would make it again! I prefer a little more spice but it was good. We will make it again but doctor it a little to our taste.

    I didn’t add the cream cheese. But we put it on top of tortilla chips with a little shredded jalapeño havarti cheese, sour cream and guacamole and it made a fantastic easy nacho!!
