  • This was a good, quick weeknight dinner. I added a little sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, avocado and a corn tortilla. Delicious! My son couldn't get enough. Plus, there are more than enough leftovers to take for lunches during the week. - 5/21/13

  • We served this with some low fat sour cream and everyone loved it! As another poster said, it would be good stuffed in red or yellow peppers. Definitely a do-over at our house! - 8/31/11

  • This was pretty good. I didn't have very much salsa or fresh tomatoes, but I had some tomato sauce and tomato paste that needed to get used and I added some corn and I used my "homemade" taco seasoning. My "picky" eaters ate two helpings. This is a keeper. - 3/31/11
