This ended up being very good but it needed some help. I cooked two chicken breasts instead of using a rotisserie chicken. I seasoned the chicken with McCormick Southwest Seasoning (a new blend from the gourmet collection). I followed the recipe as indicated but found the dish to be bland. I loved the seasoning that I used in the chicken so I went ahead and added that same seasoning to the pasta dish until it tasted right, probably about 2 teaspoons. I garnished with avocado, tomatoes, chives, red onions and strips of baked corn tortillas.

Good, easy and quick. Used hot diced green chiles in place of regular diced green chiles. Garnished with diced tomatoes.

My family really liked this, it was simple and quick. Didn't change one thing. And didn't have any left at all. I guess this made my family super happy!
