    Excellent starting point. Like the others, I added a LOT more spices. Also added a diced onion and diced bell pepper (3 colors, for the visual effect). Served with tortilla chips and a salad. Super good!

    Tasted good. Bland, so definitely add more seasoning. To be honest... Its really just a Mexican chilli with cheese melted on top. There is nothing to hold it together. When you plate it, it just spreads out like chilli.

    Excellent!!! Followed recipe, but might add some “extras” like sour cream & olives. Left out the “heat” as my husband is sensitive to that and it was still great.

    It seemed a bit bland to me even after doubling the spices. I added some salt and garlic and I put more cheese.

    Definitely double the spices! I also added some taco seasoning to mine and served it with a spoon of non fat Greek yogurt.

    Easy to make however I had to spice it up a bit for my family. Living in New Mexico it’s always fun to try new recipes with a Mexican twist

    It was great I did add my own ingredients but it came out great

    I made the recipe exactly as it’s written and found it to be a bit bland but it definitely has potential to be really good. Next time I’ll try another reviewer’s suggestion of doubling the spices, which I think should do it.

    I love this recipe! Added double flavoring sooooo good!

    Really yummy! You do have to add additional servings of spices because the ground turkey needs extra flavor. I also added frito chips at the very end to give it some substance since it doesn't keep ya full very long.
