This is one of my favorite recipes. I've served it to company twice, and have gotten both compliments and recipe requests. It's delicious!

Love it! I followed the directions down to serving w/ sour cream, cilantro, and black beans... but only because I forgot them! I really like the marmalade in the sauce - makes me want to try that in other things!

Tried making this, but I played with some of the ingredients since I am very much a wimp when it comes to spicy food. I used a mild salsa instead of salsa verde, garlic instead of garlic salt, and did not have any cilantro for the topping. I also served the finished product on top of red beans and rice that I made from a boxed mix. I found it easy to make, and the end result was flavorful. I would argue that this makes eight servings if you are pairing it with black beans (or beans and rice, like I did), since a half a stuffed roll seemed like plenty for me. Others may feel differently. I also liked that this reheated very well - it was easy for me to come home at night, pop it in the microwave and spread some sour cream on top to have a good meal. I'd make it again, and will probably continue to tinker with the ingredients / proportions until I get something that really suits my tastes.
