"As I was making this recipe I felt that it was missing something. I used chicken broth instead of water to give it more flavor, but it was still bland. I would make this again with more spices to give..." See more it more flavor. If anyone else has any suggestions please share."

"I am only giving this 4 stars because I made a few modifications based on other reviews (saying it was bland). Several people said it was bland, so I wanted to spice it up a little. Here are the m..." See moreodifiations I made: I completely omitted the water. I used one medium onion, one green pepper, and one red pepper. I used a can of enchilda sauce, a can of chicken broth, and a can of Rotel (the Mexican lime flavored kind). I also used a tad more chili powder and a dash of cayenne. It was very watery (despite using no water), yet did thicken as it sat. I served it with fresh cilantro, Mexican cheese, and tortilla chips. Next time, I will have some limes on hand to squeeze some juice over!! It's very tasty and we enjoyed it very much. The way the original recipe is written is a little confusing, because I was under the impression that everything is mixed together. But step 4 states that you serve the chicken over the rice. I was confused because I thought perhaps you were supposed to remove the chicken before cooking the rice? I cooked it by mixing everything together, and served it in bowls and it was terrific. This is a keeper!!"
