Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
We used 1/4c of our favorite fajita sauce and 1/4c of our favorite medium heat salsa, NO chiles... NO ketchup .. and we added a tsp of ground dried garlic and a pinch of white pepper.
I made this recipie for my boyfriend and I for dinner a few weeks ago, he really loved it and said he'd like it again, but I thought it needed bbq sauce instead of catchup. It was way overpowering, so if you don't like catchup and you like bbq chicken, use bbq sauce and I think it would be excellent.
was'nt quite what i thought it would be , but it was filling and pretty good . reminded me of a sloppy joe with chicken .seemed like it needed more of something !
I liked these fairly well. They could use a little more
