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...

All around this is a really great and simple way to get a hearty healthy meal. I used a really good quality salsa and it was pretty tasty.

Stupendous !

Followed the recipe exactly except added a half a cup of Bush's black beans with the full can of Pinto Beans. OMG ! Better double the recipe because after your family tastes this there will not be enough. 5 stars !

Easy and very flavorable

Our go-to recipe, easy and delicious!

My husband and I love this recipe, we top it with a little reduced fat Mexican cheese and avocado, and add ghost pepper salsa for extra heat. It's so fast and easy, is perfect for a weeknight dinner, and is tasty left over as well.

LOVES THIS!

I loved the sweet and spiciness the green salsa gave this dish. We added some of the Trader Joe's tomato-less corn salsa for a little extra texture and flavor. AMAZING!! I will be making this again and again.

A recipe to keep in your file

This is a great recipe. It's so easy to change and make it your own. For example, I changed the amount of garlic to 3 cloves. I made it ahead of time and the flavors melded together beautifully. Did not have to spend time cooking when my guests arrived. Used Pace medium Salsa which is a perfect replacement for canned tomatoes that have a lot of sugar. Great for diabetics.

Great make ahead meal.
