"The taste was amazing in this dish. I did substitute cooked ground beef in place of turkey. I live with my brother and he is not a big turkey fan. He loved this, even had seconds.Thanks for the recipe!"

"Great taste and easy to put together. I used boneless chicken breast and thighs instead of turkey because that is what I had on hand. Recipe is a good size to feed crew of hearty eaters."

"This is great. Just now eating it. I used canned chicken instead of Turkey and I used one can of Petite diced tomatoes and a cup of salsa. I also out some cooked onions in it. Other than that it is a great recipe. Family loved it."
