I've made this recipe from cooking light many times (they state slightly diff nutritionals for the recipe, like 902mg of sodium per serving) and everyone always LOVES it. I've even forgotten to add the corn before and it's still great served with corn as a side! Yum!
Me and My family liked it. I made it without the corn and cheese in my portion of the meal because I may be allergic to cheddar. It was perfect without both those ingrediants. I suggested it to a woman at my gym.
I absolutely love this. I have been making it for a number of years since I first saw it in Cooking Light. It's a favorite "go to" recipe since I usually have all the ingredients in my pantry & freezer. Great lunch leftovers the next day too.
This was tasty and very satisfying. I added a lot more seasonings(chili powder, cumin and garlic powder) to the turkey than it shows here, but it turned out really yummy! My husband loved it and didn't even know I used turkey instead of ground beef. Next time I may add more beans.
NUMMY. We are vegetarians over here - so I used tofu ground turkey (ground tofu - turkey flavored in the deli section) and it worked well. Family gave it 2 thumbs up! Will definately make this again. :)
I haven't made this exact recipe yet, but do a similar version. I use low-soduim kidney beans (S&W does low-sodium versions of several beans) and mash them up while cooking with a little of the juice from the can for my refried beans. I'll have to try this version, though...sounds really tasty!
