"This was great!!! My husband and picky teenage son really liked it. I thought it was delicious also. I don't understand the comment that said it was bland. It wasn't bland at all, in fact it had quite a kick to it and was VERY tasty. I used Lloyd's BBQ Shredded Pork. Maybe they used some other brand? Also I used the Original Tomatoes w Green Chilis and it is more spicy than the mild version. Using what I spent (some ingredients were on sale), I found this meal to be around $1.50 per person which is a real bargain."
"Delish!!! My boyfriend said, this meal is in the top 5 meals in our house! Yummy!!!!"
"A little sweet. If no Bbq flavor might be really good"
"It feels unhealthy, but tastes oh so good. Also, super easy to make. The delicious smell was making me impatient. I left out the green onion and added a little bit of dried chives instead I also added french fried onions on top."
"I made this recipe recently, substituting shredded BBQ chicken for the pork. I thought it was rather bland and nothing special but two of my family members loved it. Since my family liked it, I guess I'll make it again but maybe try adding something to make it a little more spicy."
