I used a good quality salsa, double-batch of homemade taco seasoning and double the cilantro. I made the end result into fajitas with sauteed red pepper, sweet onion and minced garlic. As always, I think the quality of your ingredients can make or break your recipe--I'm glad I doubled the spices and used a good salsa. We were quite hungry today so this fed us well with enough leftover for another meal, with the sauteed vegetables. I'll make this again.

This a great way to feed a crowd. I add a can of black beans, rinsed and drained, and a bag of frozen whole kernal corn.

Yum! Really, really good. Instead of taco seasoning mix I just threw in some spices: cumin, ancho chile powder, sea salt, black/white pepper, oregano, etc. The cilantro gives it such a fresh flavor; if you like cilantro, you'll like this dish. I served it in whole wheat flour tortillas with shredded cabbage, shredded cheese, plain yogurt, and fresh cilantro. I'll definitely make again. Thanks :)
