Reviews for Turkey Mole with Rice
"This is one of my favorites. I make it with leftover turkey after Thanksgiving."
"Very tasty. Next time I will use a mild salsa. My own made this dish extremely spicy and I like alot of heat."
"I used the ingredients as listed and the results was wonderful. Yes I would make it again and again. Perhaps for company."
"I thought this was really delicious. I had to make a few substitutions. I wasn't able to find chipotle in adobo in my grocery store, so I used chipotle salsa. I used a little roasted red pepper in the sauce to give it some body. I also added a dash of cumin and a dash of chili powder for an extra smoky flavor. It was quick and easy!"
"This recipe was very good. I probably used a little more ckn broth and lime juice than called for just to tame the heat and/or dilute it. Served it with brown basmati rice. This is a keeper!"
