Reviews for Chicken 'n' Bean Tacos
"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."
"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."
"Very happy with this recipe. Tasty, easy, low-fat. I'll make this again soon."
