"Had this for the first time tonight (4/13/12). Made accoding to recipe and I wouldn't change a thing. Wow! So yummy. This is definately going on top of the favorite list."

"I LOVE this recipe. I've made it several times now and with different types of meat: diced chicken, ground turkey, and ground beef. It's delicious with all of them. The one thing I do a little differently than the recipe is that I put just a spoonful of the sauce inside each tortilla - I think it's awesome that way! My family and several friends ALL love it! I'll make this again and again! Thank you!"

"These were really delicious; I used ground turkey instead of beef. I used corn tortillas and they became almost tamale-like. Will definitely be making these again!"
