READER'S COMMENT:
"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...

I am obsessed with eating well's recipes. This one was middle of the road, however. Granted, I used ground turkey instead of beef and didn't have taco sauce so I used pico de gallo. I also added two diced summer squashes. I probably won't make this again.

Very delicious and easy; even my husband has made this dish several times. We substitute black beans.

Fabulous! I used Frontera Green Salsa. I recommend all of their products. I served this with cornbread.

We loved it - used a jar of El Pinto mild green chili sauce.

Just made this for dinner tonight. It is very flavorful and very easy. I left out the cayene and cumin (didn't have either) and used Thick and Chunky salsa verde, their "medium" hot version. My husband and I liked it and I will make again.
