Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS! FABULOUS!!!!! I did add a couple of things: I didn't have green peppers, but used 6 mini orange and yellow peppers. I added 1/2 an onion and 1 tsp minced garlic (as someone else suggested). After tasting it, decided to add 1 can cream style corn and 1 can condensed tomato soup. Then topped w/ shredded cheddar cheese and broiled. We served it in Mission Sun Dried Tomato Basil Wraps and Mission Jalepeno Cheddar Wraps. These are definately a new favorite. I think the recipe says it yeilds 6 servings. Well, we had 6 "burritos" last night and I think there's enough left over for dinner tonight. Absolutely LOVED this!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read the reviews about how bland the recipe is. I read the reviews about how bland the recipe is. You should know to always season your meat and and flavor/spice/season through out. Remember: recipes are a GUIDE! You kind of have to play with it and get it to your liking. I never use measuring spoons or measuring cups. You gotta feel it and make any meal with love. I rally like this recipe. I used salsa,parsley black pepper, garlic and onions powder and Mrs.Dash through out. Really good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long on portions, short on seasoning. Long on portions, short on seasoning. This recipe was very quick, easy, and not expensive to make. It makes nice size portions (especially for two people). Our main complaint is that it is bland, as others have stated. I added a can of corn to the recipe, and served it with sour cream and hot salsa. My husband spiced it up more with hot sauce. I recommend seasoning to individual taste or you may be disappointed.

It was good because it changed up our original fajita recipe we make on a weekly basis. I did add taco seasoning, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin to give it a little spice from other people saying it was bland. We didn't eat it by itself but made burritos with it with sour cream and salsa. It made a lot of leftovers that we froze to eat next week. A good recipe.

When I read the other reviews of possibly tasting bland, I substituted the can of green chilies and tomatoes, with 4.5 oz can of green chopped chilies (undrained) and 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes (undrained), plus 1 cup of salsa and 1/2 teaspoon of cumin. Loved it! A great way to use the over-abundance of green peppers at the end of the growing season in the garden.

I read the reviews about it being bland so I added 2 tbsp taco seasoning and 1 tbsp chili powder. It still was not enough to season it well. I also added 1 can of pinto beans for fiber and to make it go further. I like the list of ingredients and how quickly it came together, it just needs so work in the flavor department.

Did not read reviews prior to making but thought it sounded bland so I browned the meat with chopped onions, added cayenne pepper, garlic,black pepper and a bit of salt. We loved it. Next time we will try putting it into flour tortilla's topped with salsa a sour cream.

I added the taco seasoning to the meat and also I added a can of black beans to make it go a little farther because we are big on leftovers for lunch. Pretty delish for being so simple!
