    Absolutely delicious! I've shared it with friends and family. I also made extra brown rice and used the Glad snack-size bags (fits one cup servings) for storage (freezer and frig), That has made it be easy to grab bags for heating leftovers. I will make for my parents soon. Thanks! - 7/17/09

    For 317 calories, this is a keeper! Certainly filling - healthy comfort food! I served over 1/2 c brown rice and let the family add shredded cheese and sour cream as Laurynmadsen did. I did use a can of diced tomatoes instead of sauce & added my own SW seasoning (vs Ms Dash). So good! - 9/28/08

    This has become a real husband pleaser in my household. I substitute crushed tomatoes for the sauce, and some chili powder and cumin instead of the Mrs. Dash's seasoning. I serve it on brown rice with low-fat sour cream and shredded 2% cheddar. Yum!! Thank you for this great recipe - 11/5/09

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • This has gone into our regular rotation - the family loves it! I add a can of petite diced tomatoes with the seasonings and use 1 cap full of Mrs. Dash seasoning. It is great with sliced avocado on the side dressed simply with lime juice and fresh ground pepper. - 7/18/14

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No

  • Very, very good. Easy to prepare. It seemed a bit bland (hubby was putting salt all over it - horrors!), but some extra seasoning perked it right up. - 7/12/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Absolutely amazing!!! I think I might make it again this weekend it was just that yummy!! I used brown rice with it instead of instant rice but i'm sure either way it is just as good. Thanks for sharing! - 7/6/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • This was better than I expected! Like others, I used plain tomato sauce and then did my own spices: basil, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. I served it over brown rice, which makes it go further - we got about 8 servings out of this. - 6/25/12

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No

  • This is a great recipe. I always saute real garlic, green pepper and some mushrooms just to include some fresh vegetable. Then I season with Goya-Adobo. Its really a good recipe that you can build on in many ways! - 11/9/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • That was yummy and filling and I will definitely make it again. I feel it has some room to grow on the exact spice combination, but not a bad start at all! - 10/25/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Will definitely make again! I used mild chili beans, garlic/basil/oregano diced tomatoes, frozen corn, and fresh minced garlic. I also omitted the spices that the author used, and used chili powder and cumin. Wish it was spicier--I'll experiment with other spices in the future. thanks! - 10/18/11

  • Had 2 lbs. total ground turkey & ground chuck that needed to be cooked. Used cumin & chili powder instead of Mrs. D. 1 can rotel tomatoes & 1 can tomatoes w/garlic, oregano, basil. No rice. With modifications, deserves 5 stars. DH loved it. Lots of leftovers for later. Thanks, NESSA79. - 7/15/11

  • I used fresh garlic versus garlic powder, and added jalapenos for extra flavor. I used "no salt" tomato sauce and added my own basil. I also made homemade habanero hot sauce (cut down on the sodium of regular hot sauce). Overall the recipe was good, and I will definitely make it again. - 6/21/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Good Recipe, Although my husband said a little cheese would be good. - 4/4/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I was so enthusiastic to try this recipe that I started right away, even without all the precise ingredients. I subbed plain tomato sauce and added 1 Tbl. of basil and went extra heavy on the garlic powder. I also added 1 tsp. of Taco seasoning and a pinch of Uncle Dan's Ranch dressing mix. Yum! - 3/6/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No

  • I made this recipe for dinner tonight. My husband and I enjoyed it very much. We didn't think it needed any rice. My husband asked what I'm making tomorrow for an encore. I told him I could make this again...he smiled. I used Rotel and a little tomato paste instead of the sauce. Yum! - 1/8/11

  • Wonderful and easy. I made a enchilada type casserole. I added wheat tortillas, lined the baking dish with tortillas, then topped with the turkey fiesta sprinkle some 2% cheese and repeat. Top again with cheese and bake until cheese is melted. Cut up avacado slices for garnish. - 10/29/10

  • I've made this for my hubby and will have to let you know what he thinks...as I don't like black beans but he really does. I also added ground cummin as it really seemed to fit with the Mexican theme.

    Ok the results are in and the hubby liked it! Thanks for sharing! - 4/28/10

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • I made this recipe in a pinch tonight. Didn't have many of the exact ingredients but it still turned out great! I used 16 oz. plain NSA Tomato Sauce and didn't have any corn. We used tostada shells, topped with ff sour cream and ff cheese and paired with brown rice! Definite repeat!! - 4/5/10

  • Love this recipe- I also thought it was spice light and I tried 4 dashes of hot sause, basil, cummin, chili, and still did not have the kick I wanted- and then my eyes saw Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning- covered the mixture with it and it was just what it needed- some kick and great spice - 11/8/09

  • Nice recipe! I replaced the tomato sauce with organic diced tomatoes with basil, blended, to reduce sodium content. I also added a jalapeƱo to boost flavor, but this could have used even more heat. Still, the contrast among the ingredients is very enjoyable. Thank you! - 6/11/09

  • This recipe was tasty! I needed an idea of how to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. Instead of ground turkey, I shredded the turkey meat. I didn't have the Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning, so I used the Mrs. Dash Tomato, Basil & Garlic seasoning. It was so flavorful! My family loved it! - 12/2/08

My oldest daughter (Picky eater) said she didn't like it because of the black beans and we did add ground cummin to it but even my husband liked it!!!
