This was yummy! The recipe lends itself easily to adaptation. I actually omitted the jalapeno entirely and used less cilantro because I was making it for young children. I stirred in a little salsa at the end. My oldest child opted to eat hers in a tortilla, like a burrito.

Easy to make, very colorful on the plate, could use some more intensity/depth. Made to direction using a whole jalapeno. Served with Frontera chipotle salsa , cheese quesadillas and beer.

So glad I found this recipe. My husband loved it. Like other reviewers, I doubled the sauce recipe and increased the jalapeno (1 1/2 large, plus half the seeds of 1 jalapeno for extra heat). Next time I will use beef broth (actually, Better than Bullion) to bump up the meaty taste.

Like others, we found that we enjoyed this better doubling the chicken broth amount and doing a full jalepeno, instead of half. Still did not have much heat to it by our rating. Made enough for two and leftovers the next day. We did this with rice and found the leftovers to be even better since the broth soaked in with the rice overnight. It turned out to be better than we expected and prep was pretty easy.

Great dish. We did add more stock to make a sauce and served over eggless noodles.

I think that this is a great, standard, weeknight dish. I agree with Whygal that it needs jalapeno and a little extra sauce. I also put a little chili powder and cayenne pepper on the meat before I cooked it.

Very tasty and quick to pull together on a weeknight. I followed other reviewers' advice and added an extra jalepeno. It was spicy without being too hot. I also added a little lime juice at the end which brightened it up a bit. This will be good with chicken too. Served with boil-in-bag brown rice for a healthy fast meal.

Good stir fry but not in my top 10.
