Love this recipe. I have made this recipe a couple of times and am making it again tonight. Cannot wait for dinner tonight!

MY REVIEW

Everyone in the house loves this one, even the picky 5-year-old. There's rarely leftovers, and if there are, the husband and I fight over who gets to take them to work the next day.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2011

I've made this recipe a few times. Love the spices and taste, but to combat the dryness I add about a 1/2 cup to 1 cup of taco sauce to the turkey mixture. This definetely helped and tastes great.

I'm always looking for new recipes to shake up my weeknight dinner rut. This one is a keeper! I can't wait to make it again!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2011

I think the reason these won a contest is because they are unique. My husband and I liked them OK, but not enough for me to bother to make again. As far as the topping goes, it was unusual but not at all objectionable. We had these with guacamole on the side, which really helped with the dryness and made the dish more tasty overall.
