This is a wonderful weeknight meal because it is put together so fast. It has a slight Mexican flavor but it is not over-powering.—Diana Filban, Cut Bank, Montana

"I made this for dinner last night. I have 7 kids and none of them liked this, nor did my husband. I am pregnant and very sick, so I didn't have any, I ate something else. However, no one else in my home cared for it. My husband said he could eat it, but not to make it again.

I made it exactly as the recipe said, no alterations."

"I have my own recipe for cabbage rolls and my husband just told me that he likes this one even better because he doesn't have to cut it up. We loved it. So easy to prepare."
