MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 23, 2013

This was very easy, but just didn't taste that great. Needs a lot more seasoning to give it any oomph. Too many other recipes that are better to use this one again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2009

This is a great recipe. I kicked it up a notch and added 1lb of 93% lean ground turkey, yellow pepper, red pepper, and fresh garlic. I also cooked it in a slow cooker on high for 5 hours. AWSOME LOW FAT RECIPE!
