    I wasn't as excited as everyone else about these. Hubby thought that they were pretty good. Not sure that they will be on the menu that often. Needed a bit more flavor or something... - 2/2/09

    Instead of serving in a tortilla, I served over rice which wasn't bad. Used black beans instead of kidney and left out sour cream. Added in some hot banana peppers. Overall tasty but would taste better in a tortilla than over rice. - 1/26/14

    Excellent! I used equal parts lime & lemon juice, 1 tsp dried red pepper flqakes, 1/2 c fresh chopped red pepper, & a little sprinkle of the jalapeno pickled peppers for a spicy version. My husband got hungry & ate some before I shredded & added the beans. He loved the flavor! - 7/7/10

  • My husband was more impressed with this recipe than I was last time I made it. He really liked it and has requested it again tomorrow. For me, it was just ok - i'm not sure about the salsa/citrus fruit base. Needed some more reasoning I think - 6/2/11
