MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 29, 2011

We love this recipe. We add a bit more jalapeno than called for and with salsa and sour cream it is wonderful. We make this frequently and it's easy enough for my husband to make when I work late

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 16, 2010

My husband thought this recipe was okay and my kids hated it (they are 3, 4 & 6). My husband thought it was bland. I didn't eat is since I am a vegetarian so I can't really give an opinion.
