Made this tonight - it's okay, not great. I felt that the measurement of stock was too much for the amount of rice (and that included having a slightly larger quantity of turkey mince). I much prefer the pork and black bean tacos that are on the GF website - as these tacos are a little bland and "soft" for my taste.

This was easy to make and delicious, not overly spicy as my family enjoyed it and they don't like things too hot. I added a chopped onion to the recipe which I softened before adding in the chipotle paste and I added a tin of kidney beans in chilli sauce rather than just the plain variety. Very filling and will definitely make again.
