I’ve made this recipe as written many times since I first found it here and it’s always a hit! I tried something new today though... I added about a tablespoon of hot sauce and wow! I’m my opinion, it made a great addition!

Easy and delicious. I left out the onions and used feta instead of mozzarella. Yum!

I made these tonight for dinner and my family loved them. I did not have any ground turkey so I used the ground beef.
