Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Taso I really liked this recipe it was great tasting plus it’s a recipe that I can change up with a different ground meat different type of bread ie pita.. and when I make the meatballs it’s easy to double up the recipe and use them in other dishes and freeze for a meal in no time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best BBQ Coleslaw Recipe This is one of the best bbq coleslaw recipes, just needs a little more sweetness to balance the heat in the slaw. That's why I didn't give 5 stars but for the most part...the best in a while!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flavor I will definitely be making this again just add more sauce next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Delicious I was hesitant to try this due to my husband being a beef farmer and it used ground chicken. Haha! I also had never cooked or eaten ground chicken. This was so easy to make and had so much flavor! It will definitely be made in our household again. If you want to lay off the carbs a bit, it tastes just as good without the bun. You definitely need to try this recipe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious The slaw could of used a little more flavor, but overall will make it again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yum I love eating food, especially when it is smothered in ranch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Had a weird chewy texture and off taste I absolutely love Ranch in general but I am not all that impressed with this recipe because it had bit of a weird didn't-follow-the-rules type texture. Full disclosure - I lost my hands in a boating accident back in '93 but I was able to use my forearms instead and I did my best so I don't think that had anything to do with it as the recipe was followed to a T other than that. If I were ever to remake this I'd probably go a little bit lighter on the sentences but overall I'm just disappointed and will go with a different recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delious but have options This is a very simple but delious recipe. I have made this three times but switched the meat. I have tried ground chicken, turkey and pork. They all work well depending on your preference of protein.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good combination I like traditional coleslaw and also chipotle seasoning. Together is a winning recipe.
