Great recipe! "It was good. I liked the spices," says 8-year-old Joel.
We made wraps with this several nights and also ate it with potatoes one night. It's a very versatile entree. I followed the recipe as exactly as I could -- used dried rather than fresh cilantro and ground red pepper rather than flakes. Our chili powder is McCormick's Hot Mexican Chili, which adds quite a yummy kick. And I used our slow cooker rather than a crock pot.
We'll be making this recipe again. Thanks for sharing it.
ALSO! Love the home-made taco seasoning! I've been wanting to get taco seasoning without all the MSG in the pre-packaged powders. This is super. Thanks!
