Good and filling. I think it needs it a bit more cumin. Easy to make and uses ingredients in pantry. Will make again.

Someone made these for me and my husband. They were pre-made and frozen and then baked in the oven when ready to serve. They were very tasty. Since I am not on renal diet, I added a little cheese and low fat sour cream to mine but even without it they were very good.

What's the nutritional difference between tomato puree & tomato sauce (same qty) ? Haven't tried it yet so low stars. Dietitian comment: Tomato puree is more concentrated than tomato sauce. It has 550 mg potassium for 1/2 cup compared to 360 mg potassium in 1/2 cup of tomato sauce.

Can't understand your recipes they show high potassium,phosphorous,sodium values under diabetic choices what are these values meat,starch,fat? carb choices with a no. value what do these mean? Dietitian comment: The renal and renal diabetic food choices are determined by the ingredients and nutrient content and patterned after the National Renal Diet from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics ( The Carbohydrate Choices are for people with diabetes who use carbohydrate counting to help manage their diets. One carbohydrate choice is equal to 15 grams of carbohydrate.

I eliminated the green pepper and added a little more onions. I also had to add ground red pepper, and added some onion powder. Living in the southwest we like things a little spicier.

I make these for my father, who is a vegetarian. We substitute Quorn--a mushroom protein meat-substitute that comes in a ground beef consistency--for the ground beef, and he loves it. I also use a local chili powder blend (no salt added) to make it a little spicier. One of his favorites!

My husband really liked it - it's a first w/o sour cream and avacados. Went a little heavier on the onions and cumin as it keeps his desire for the salt shaker down. Very easy to make and will use again.
