  • Made in Crock Pot. Doubled the recipe, as my crock pot is a 5 qt. I forgot the oil & just used water, instead of using broth - I didn't have any. It is VERY good. Will definitely make again. - 8/5/10

  • Instead of dressing this up as a taco I ate it as a Mexican side dish. It was good. Not too spicy but with a nice flavor and simple to make. - 9/17/09
