      Not kidding when they say it taste just like Wendy's! (although I noticed there was no ingredient listing for fingers.. hehehe). Used 1/2 and 1/2 - beef and ground turkey, tasted same. DID have to adjust the liquid amts. Definitely does not call for enough, need about double that, depending on the consistency you prefer. Purchased a liter tin of veg. juice. used the 2 cups it called for, and the 1 cup of water, ended up adding the remaining veg. juice (about 2 cups) and another cup and a half of water. Also when you add the raw veggies in it might seem doubtful that it will reach the same texture of wendy's but cook it for the amount of time listed and they do start to break down and become soft. ONly noticed this b/c usually you sautee the onions with the meat prior to the liquid stage. Flavor is great and it makes 12 HEALTHY servings - have a LG stockpot.
