Really good! I added spicy Italian sausage with a maple syrup glaze for a little extra.

Delicious! I love making this in the summer so I don't have to heat up the kitchen. Would also be good on the grill; just make sure they aren't too full!

My vegetarian daughter loved this. I added the chiles and the salsa directly to the mixture and omitted the chicken broth. Adding chicken meat to the recipe would work also for the carnivores out there. What a wonderful recipe.

By the opening comment, It's had to believe some people only eat sweet potato at Thanksgiving. I guess they only eat turkey then also. ???
