"I made the recipe exactly as-is. It was convenient because it used up a bunch of leftovers I had on hand. I found it to be very bland however, and wouldn't make it again without changing it up."

"I made this with left over cornish hens and my kids gobbled it up! Didn't realize it was 2 servings so will double from now on. I didn't have green chilies but plenty of salsa on hand so I put it in and it was awesome. I will try with chicken or even tuna."

"We just love this recipe. Hubby actually requests it. I admit I have changed it up a little. I use leftover chicken instead of turkey, I have used leftover homesalsa instead of the green chilies and onion (the best so far), I have also used a can of drained Rotel tomatoes instead of the green chilies and onion. Tonight it is leftover chicken and a jar of drained salsa. Can't wait.
