This was a very good recipe and easy to make. I will make this again. We used the leftovers for a filling in a burrito with refried beans and our favorite toppings. It was great!

I had all of the ingredients on hand for this recipe and found it was very easy to make. My neighbors kids loved it and they are picky eaters so I think it would be a hit with children. It has a good flavor and just the right amount of spice. It is a great dish for a pot luck supper or perhaps a ladies Pokeno game.
