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.
