"Loved it! Added bonus... it was quick and easy to make. I subbed low fat cheese, no fat sour cream and ground turkey the second time I made it. It was still good!"

"Very blah. We are not into real spicy, but this had hardly any flavor. I even put medium heat salsa on top. I wouldn't make again."

"This was an excellent dish. I deleted the olives because our family doesn't care for olives, but I added a 4 oz. can of chopped green chiles."
