"This was a great meal. I added ground turkey that I seasoned with garlic, chopped onions, red pepper, chili powder, and cumin. Also, I used fresh Anaheim peppers. I served with layered Mexican salad. The family loved it."

"This was very comparable to the chiles rellenos that I always get when we go out to eat Mexican food, which is one of my favorite things to order. Also very easy to make. Made the recipe as is and I wouldn't change a thing."

"Just made this and DEVOURED it. SOooo yummy. It really doesn't need any tweaks to be yummy, it stands on it's own. You could ass some chicken or beef or shrimp if you like and it would be good too."
