I wasn't sure if we were supposed to make the ground beef as directed on the taco mix package, but that is what I did. I used a seasoning packet and the 3/4 cup of water it calls for, and let it boil then simmer for 10 minutes as called for. If I had not done this, it would have been WAY too dry. I think the recipe should be a bit more specific regarding this. EDIT: I have made this recipe at least a dozen times since I first came upon it. I double it and bake it in a 13x9" pan, but use 1 1/2lbs of beef. I use either taco-seasoned beef or sloppy joes beef. My family actually prefers this with a sloppy joe beef mixture. I do add extra salsa, and I am very careful not to overcook it. I think these 2 things help keep it moist and prevent it from being dry (as well as being sure to stick it in a cold oven, and making sure the milk is the proper temperature). We LOVE this recipe.
