MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 4, 2011

We tried this tonight with some "oops - forgot you were in the freezer" left over turkey from Thanksgiving. As it cooked we got the idea to put it (with the rice, cheese, sour cream and tomato) on whole wheat tortillas and make a burrito out of it. Yum! Definitely will make again!

I really enjoyed this recipe. Made plenty for leftovers the next day. I'm thinking of adding black beans to the next go round!
