MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2014

We tried this and thought it was just okay. I made the recipe as instructed with no changes. If I ever make it again, I would use cilantro over parsley, and possibly add part of a taco seasoning packet to boost the flavor a little.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2011

I didn't think this recipe would be all that great based on the ingredients, BUT I WAS WRONG! The family ate it up! No left overs with this one.
