This was great. We took the advice of the first review skipped the egg noodles and turned it into taco stuffing. Burrito stuffing would be great as well. I also exchanged the spices and ued a taco spice already made up. Read More

Made with a mix of beans since the grocery store has no black beans but I am sure it made no difference. Great week day meal. Read More

No Yolks Skillet Salsa Chicken Haiku: "Followed recipe cept cubed chicken breast not ground. Thought it was quite good!" Made this as directed only using 2 chicken breast halves instead of the 1/2 lb. of ground. Served on top of the noodles w/ cheddar cheese green onions and cilantro and it was really tasty but we all agreed that we would've preferred the chicken/bean/corn "guts" either wrapped in a tortilla or spooned over rice. We just didn't think that No Yolks jived w/ the Southwestern flavors of this dish. Read More

Made it per recipe. It tasted wonderful. All five kids liked it. I would not use the pasta again. Didn't taste bad just an odd combo. We will serve it over rice in a taco in a burrito over chips or as a lettuce wrap. Very healthy and crowd pleasing Read More

Very good! I made the meat mix exactly as it read but mixed in a bag of Uncle Bens precooked brown Santa Fe rice (instead of noodles) and it was wonderful. We all ate it differently. 7 year old on tortilla chips like nachos husband on a tortilla and me over a bed of lettuce. Read More
