    This was super easy and super good, especially with a serving of black beans (1/2 cup adds 110 calories & 1g fat, but 6g of fiber and 7g of protein). - 4/3/09

    I made this tonight and the smell alone was almost too much for my family. They were hovering around the kitchen waiting for it! I served it on a bed of lettuce, tomatoes and diced onion and turned it into a chicken taco salad kinda thing. Gosh... FANTASTIC recipe!! - 4/27/09
