  1. Love this recipe; made it several times. (I use corn tortillas). It’s always a hit
    with friends/family.

  2. I am making this for tonights dinner as I am working a night shift tonight. It was super easy and I adapted it by putting a little extra Mexene powder, garlic and some frozen corn. It smells delish. Can't wait to get up at 4 this afternoon and dinner is ready. The salad is also made and ready to just take out of fridge.

  3. Great recipe! I made this in early September, as written, and it was a hit! Quick, easy, and yummy. Made it again with lean ground turkey to lighten up and also added corn to the mix. For a little more heat, I went with tomatoes with jalepenos. So good! Thank you!

  4. Does 'fire roasted' mean that the tomatoes are spicier/hotter? Would a mild Rotel work? I'm a real light weight when it comes to spicy hot foods….Thanks, Cheryl

    • Hi Cheryl! "Fire Roasted" simply means that the tomatoes have been charred with flames, which adds a little extra flavor. Rotel would work as well. This dish is not at all spicy. I'm a wimp when it comes to "hot" :)
