    I had chicken leftovers in my fridge and had the rest of the ingredients in my pantry. Very easy to make and very tasty. I might add some cilantro if I make it again. - 5/4/08

  • This is tasty! I followed the advice of junkinthetrunk8 and added taco seasoning to the meat! It was great! I also added some shredded cheese. This actually helped hold it together a bit more. I think this is best the second day! :o) - 4/6/09
