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...

Had some extra ground beef in the house and wanted to make something quick. This recipe is PERFECT! For dinner I placed it over rice and for lunch the next day, I placed it over a bed of spinach! So yummy! I will probably add more veggies to the recipe next time!

Great recipe! I substituted ground turkey for the beef, added two diced tomatillos, and added half red pepper and half bell pepper, and added an extra can of black beans. Delicious! Couldnt tell that it wasnt beef. Flexible recipe and its good for you.

Very good, very easy, a real crowd pleaser for a holiday caroling party. Would consider for a Super Bowl party.

I made this for dinner and we thought it was great. I realized into cooking it I had no chili powder so omitted that ingredient and it was still great! I used the green taco sauce. I served it with tortillas, grated cheese, sour cream, guacamole and regular salsa.

Loved this!!! Very easy to make & had a great spicy flavor. I added some crushed tortilla chips to each bowl. Will definitely make this again!
