I needed a quick dinner tonight--this fit the bill perfectly. My oldest boy made this pretty much on his own, I suggested he make a few small changes. We added a small chopped onion, some fresh minced garlic and a little of my homemade taco seasoning. The boys wanted "taco smiles" so we served this in taco shells (instead of on sandwich buns) with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and a little reduced fat sour cream. It was a little sloppy but honestly, we were too hungry to care. With a side of cilantro-lime rice, this was a nice filling dinner that literally took 20 minutes from start to finish and my son was quite proud he made a meal that his little brother and mother liked.

They tasted fine. The only reason I gave these three stars is because they had the same taste as a can of Manwich and not a taco taste. I was expecting a more spicy taco taste, which mine did not have. Cheese tends to kill some of the spice. Maybe if you use hot salsa this would be different from a sloppy joe.

very good! used 2 lbs ground beef. while browning, added minced onion and a couple dashes of chili powder. Used 1 can of tomato soup, 1 cup of salsa, and a packet of taco season. Simmered for 15 minutes. added a handful of cheddar cheese and mixed it up. Served! Very good change of pace!!

This turned out nice! I followed some other reviewers advice and added a packet of spicy taco seasoning (I was making it for my boyfriend and he loves spicy food). I also added 1/4 cup of chopped onions to the ground beef as it cooked, as well as 1/8 tsp of cumin and a 1/4 tsp. chili powder. After mixing everything in I splashed it a few times with Franks hot sauce and piled it onto buns. Easy, and I will be making it again!

I can't believe this has not been tried by more people! My husband loves these and so do the kids! I add a package of Taco Seasoning and About 1/2 to 3/4 jar of Salsa. I toast the buns in the oven and it is oh so good and inexpensive. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!
