"Really easy to make & really tasty!! The Green Goddess salad dressing is amazing! Next time i will leave out the kidney beans though as we didn't care for them in this recipe. Also, i will add some spices to the meat."

"This recipe was very easy to make and was extremely delicious. I made it for a girl's night and we were so stuffed because we couldn't stop eating it! The dressing was a little hard to find-not all grocery stores carry it but I found it at Ralph's. I love this recipe, I am making it again this week."
