    I substituted lean ground turkey for the beef. I also added mushrooms, celery, onions, and fresh spinach to the meat. Next time I want to try substituting the rice for quinoa. - 1/26/12

    I used just a dusting of cheese on top and omitted it from the peppers - topping them mostly with tomato sauce. I used 2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp smoky hot paprika and 1 tsp cumin instead of the other seasonings and it is close to SAZON - 8/6/12
