    This was pretty good. I've never had Avocado before. So it took me a minute to figure out how to peel it, core it, and cut it. Also, i divided my meal into smaller portions. So, instead of getting 4 servings out of it, I will get about 6-8 servings. - 10/20/09

  • MMMMM!!! My entire family loved this including my picky husband and my kids. We used pepper jack cheese and omitted the rice but had steamed spanish rice and fat free refried beans on the side. :o) Will add this to the regualr rotation. - 6/15/09

  • I loved that I didn't have to heat up the whole house making this tasty dish. I think I will like it better with some jack cheese instead of the swiss, though, to complement the flavors of the salsa & avocado. But overall, a deliciously filling meal! - 6/5/09
