MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 12, 2014

This was so authentic tasting. I didn't have cumin so I used 1 tsp of Mexican chili powder gave it lost of flavor. Also, I used 1/2 cup fresh deli salsa which gave it some kick. the left over NY strip steak had been seasoned with Montreal steak seasoning. So good, this will now be my go to recipe for leftover steak.

These were good, but I think they needed more kick I don't like spicy but it needed a little more flavor

I used this recipe and used it over tortilla chips to make nachos instead. I also added a can of black beans to the mix. We enjoyed it very much!

MY REVIEW

This was very good. I also make extra when I cook steak for tacos and such. I made the recipe as is, it was good. But, for our taste I added 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes for some heat. I will make this again!

Absolutely fabulous recipe! We always have leftover steak so this works great for me. My kids love these as well. A definite plus as they are very picky with "Mexican" food. Thanks for sharing.
