This is one of my favorite cooksmarts meals! It was delicious.0 Helpful
DELICIOUS!! Eliminated the cilantro (preference), added more shallots in with the shrimp to cook, and chopped the shrimp. With alteration to the oil amounts, using corn tortillas, this recipe was a delicious 11 WW points!! Definitely going to make this one again!0 Helpful
We liked these, but definitely needed more spice and some seasonings for the corn and bean salsa. We made leftovers into rice bowls and they were very good also.0 Helpful
