    When I saw this recipe and saw that it was made with lean turkey, I couldn't believe it. Plus 1.5 cups of onion, I was like are you sure. Nonetheless I followed it as much as I could, except that I used 2 garlic cloves. Excellent! Taste just like 80% Chuck Beef. When do the peppers go in, though? - 7/10/08

    This was really amazing! So filling and good! I filled 2 taco shells with one serving and added a little bit of fat-free sour cream. I felt completely full afterwards. - 11/16/10
