"This recipe was great and so quick. I used 94% lean ground turkey, added some corn and also added a little tomato paste to thicken it up and give it some color. I only used an 8 oz jar of green taco sauce because I didn't realize it...

Fabulous and fast!

I have an authentic from-scratch Chile Verde recipe that simply can't be beat, but for a quick weeknight meal, this was fabulous in my tummy! My husband and I both really enjoyed it. I always follow recipes exactly as they're written the first time I make them, and this one gets 5 true stars...as is!

Easy and quick to prepare

This is a repeater!

This is such a great base recipe but can also be updated by adding other fresh ingredients. We like corn and lots of cilantro in ours! And it's sooo easy to make. Perfect week night supper.

easy and delicious

This recipe was great and so quick. I used 94% lean ground turkey, added some corn and also added a little tomato paste to thicken it up and give it some color. I only used an 8 oz jar of green taco sauce because I didn't realize it called for a 16oz. I had to add a little extra water. It still came out great. I think you can do a lot w/this recipe!

This is my absolute favorite chile recipe ever. My husband actually requests this meal! I definitely add more/various types of beans to the recipe and use more salsa verde because I like it spicy. Overall, this recipe rocks!
