"I really like this recipe because it is easy to make and it is very flavorful! All the flavors work well together and it is nice to use ground turkey for a change. This meal is also great the next day for leftovers!"

"Quick, easy and filling. No criticism. But it kind of felt like a cheat. Just me I'm sure."

"Good. Nothing fancy but really easy and quite healthy, lots of lean protein. Not much effort to make."

"We have been making this easy supper so often that after several years, it has become a staple on our rotating menu list. I combined all the spices into a jar so that I could easily toss them in at once. The quick ingredients and having the spices already prepared has made this my #1 cheater meal. It's excellent with tortilla chips. I leave the vinegar out because I dislike vinegar, and I use regular Mexican blend shredded cheese. A favorite. Thanks for the recipe! :)"

"This meal was very good. I had to use white rice because I had no brown rice. I also used Mexican Blend cheese instead of cheddar and I thought the Mexican cheese complimented the meal very well. Definitely added to my book of recipes."
