  1. Tasty. But the written recipe ingredients list above does not match the video, which INCLUDES 1/2 a diced yellow onion and does NOT have onion powder, garlic powder or T of minced garlic. I increased to use 1 C of homemade enchilada sauce, since my skillet meal seemed dry with just the 1/2 C listed (& in the video). We ate ours with tortilla chips and a fresh spinach side-salad.
