Made this for the family tonight, quick easy and very good. I did add extra cumin and next time I'll add some chopped cilantro. The trick is to allow the broth to reduce until there's very little liquid left in bottom of skillet. Will make this again. I served this with salsa and sour cream.

Very good with lots of flavor and I added jalapenos. ;)

Made this for a Lenten meal and it was fabulous! The house smelled so good and everyone loved it. The only thing I did differently was to add some finely chopped jalapeno because we love spicy, but other than that I made it exactly as the recipe and was perfect. Will be making this a lot! Don't forget the sour cream and salsa on top!

My husband and I thought that this recipe was great! It was very easy to prepare and tasted absolutely delicious...I can't wait to make it again!

Tasty and a fun idea, but ours was a little soggy and didn't absorb all the liquid. The only changes I made were to use whole wheat tortilas and chicken in place of one can of beans. I baked it 20 minutes, but maybe it needed longer?

I live in Germany so ended up using some slightly different ingredients, but I think it turned out really well. The biggest difference being using black beans canned in chili sauce and rinsing the chili sauce off which leaves some pleasantly seasoned black beans which I think really brought the recipe home. I'd definitely recommend this recipe, its very very good and will be used by my family from now on.

I made this last night in preparation for Lent, and found it delicious. I used onion/chili tortillas from Trader Joes, and used canned chilies instead of green peppers, and their frozen roasted corn, and twice as much cheese. I was afraid of the liquid, but it cooked down and the thing was solid and cut beautifully into large, filling wedges. I thought it wouldn't be enough for four people, but it's very filling. I would top with sour cream and pico de gallo. I will also add sliced black olives. I did add some extra cumin and red pepper because we like spicy. Overall, a great recipe for Lent and my husband who hates vegetarian dishes usually said I could make it any time.

Very good and tasty recipe. My husband is not a fan of ground turkey but he actually requested that I make this again. I used whole wheat tortillas and I didn't have a springform pan, so I put it all in a cast iron pan in the oven. It worked perfectly!
