My family loved this recipe and I can report that it freezes and reheats wonderfully. I used chicken instead of turkey, simply because I had a whole bag of chicken tenderloins in my freezers. The lime and cumin are a 'must' as those ingredients really made the flavors 'pop. Thanks for the recipe Ellie, it's a keeper.
