Easy and Delicious

From somewhere who is not experienced in the kitchen, this recipe was super easy and delicious. It didn't require too many ingredients that I did not already own and was very quick. I followed someone else's review and used ground turkey, and it came out great!


Surprisingly easy to make. And tastes very good. Let it set a day (if you can wait) to let the flavors grow stronger.

The key is finding the right green salsa for your taste levels, but that's easy enough to play around with

easy, tasty

This recipe had more meat, beans, and veggies than sauce, so it was really satisfying. Easy to adjust the "kick" by varying the spice amounts.

Easy to prepare, lots of flavor
My Husband loves this dish!

It is so easy to make. It has just the right mis of flavors. My husband and son loves this recipe.
Love this!

I love this recipe! It's cheap, easy and healthy. It was way too spicy though so I'll be reducing the amount of spices next time. This will be a recurring meal for me.

Filling, makes a lot
