"This was horrible. The bread crumbs made it that much worse. Don't waste the ingredients like I did."
"I love this recipe. It is a good family favorite. I generally add 1 can of rinsed canned black beans to the mix. It is delicious! It tastes like the dishes that I was served in Brazil."
"This recipe was okay but lacked that wow factor. I did not top with the bread crumbs and butter but I like the idea from Texas Cookie of using a cracker crumb topping. I used fresh tomatoes as a topping because my family loves them."
"Extremely tasty comfort food. We used extra sharp cheese and a cracker crumb top but otherwise stuck to the recipe. For those who prefer something spicier I would suggest a little more chili powder or perhaps some Ro*tel tomatoes instead of the plain ones called for; it would be an easy fix."
"This is pretty good but nothing i'd make too often. A little bit bland."
