    Made it many times and it is wonderful! It’s very versatile so you can make it your own but very good bones of a recipe to go by. Always great.

    Great recipe, used enchilada sauce and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

    A little smoked paprika goes a LONG way, and I felt that a whole teaspoon overpowered the other flavors in this dish. Otherwise it was easy, convenient, and tasty.

    My husband and I really liked this dish. I added some chipotle in adobo because we like that Smokey heat. Thanks for a low carb Mexican dinner for Dia de los Muertos!

    I live in an area where I can't get some of the ingredients, so I had to substitute the chiles/jalapeño with some small green peppers. Left out the beans and added some ground chicken. Turned out really good.

    Not worth it. I use this app for almost all my recipes and they have turned out well until this one. We didn't like the flavors. 👎🏼

    This is delicious and it makes a TON. I added 1.5 cups of cubed chicken to it, and would be good on its own or with meat added. This looks like it will freeze well- could be doubled for multiple meals.

    This was delicious! I also added a small amount of lean ground beef. The whole family enjoyed this meal!
