Cheesy Chicken & Salsa Skillet

I found this recipe in my Kraft Foods magazine. It looked good and easy to prepare!

Was the recipe easy to follow?

Yes! It was very easy, plus it was easy to prep before Chad got home. I cooked the pasta, and cut up the chicken and pepper, so it was all ready to go in the skillet as soon as he was home.  Maria even cooperated for me!  🙂

Did the dish taste good?

Yes, it was good. I did add some chili powder and cumin to give it a more tex-mex flavor. I think that was definitely necessary. I think it’d be good with ground beef or turkey too!

Would you make it again?

I probably will, just because it was simple and good!  I may try with beef next time.
