"I really like this recipe because it is easy to make and it is very flavorful! All the flavors work well together and it is nice to use ground turkey for a change. This meal is also great the next day for leftovers!"

"We have been making this easy supper so often that after several years, it has become a staple on our rotating menu list. I combined all the spices into a jar so that I could easily toss them in at once. The quick ingredients and having the spices already prepared has made this my #1 cheater meal. It's excellent with tortilla chips. I leave the vinegar out because I dislike vinegar, and I use regular Mexican blend shredded cheese. A favorite. Thanks for the recipe! :)"

"This meal was very good. I had to use white rice because I had no brown rice. I also used Mexican Blend cheese instead of cheddar and I thought the Mexican cheese complimented the meal very well. Definitely added to my book of recipes."
