    I didn't use the black beans or the corn, and I added a can of cheddar cheese soup, I used a can of rotel and a can of diced tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce. I also used left over turkey instead of ground turkey. This is a very tasty recipe! - 11/27/10

  • This was delicious! I served it with low fat sour cream and organic salsa. Next time I think I will chop up some bell pepper and cook it with the turkey and onions. - 1/10/11
