Really enjoyed! Just made changes based on others' suggestions and also for fat/calorie content: used nonstick cooking spray on a 9x13" pan, used only 4 taco-sized flour tortillas, added taco seasoning packet for beef & then mixed in onions and chilis, which saves time assembling, doubled the chilis (used two 4oz cans), used only about 3c sargento shredded reduced fat mexican cheese, used campbells healthy req cream of chicken soup, and also served w/LF sour cream, tomatoes, and lettuce- fantastic! :)
Use Pam to "grease" your casserole dish to cut back on fat. Saute the onions when you brown the hamburger meat. Add some fresh sliced jalapeno peppers. It needs a kick to it. Don't use that awful processed cheese food! Too much fat, imitation everything. Not worth buying. Use either a Mexican blend (there are low fat blends) or grate some cheddar and jack. There is a pepper jack cheese that is wonderful in this, and don't use a pound of cheese in it. Way too much! With some tweaking this dish can be turned into a four or perhaps a five star dish.
This was pretty good. I gave it 4 out of 5 because it seemed to kind of bland without some additions since we all like a lot of flavor. I did add taco seasoning to the beef, sauted the onions, and added some garlic and black olives. We topped it with all the usual taco toppings and it turned out real well. All in all a good recipe. We'll definatly have again with the additions!
Excellent casserole! My husband and I both enjoyed it. Oh by the way, be sure to follow the recipe and grease the casserole dish. I forgot and learned the hard way.
I am giving this 4 stars because it was easy, fast, cheap, and tasty. But it had way too much cheese. Ended up looking a lot more like cheese dip than casserole. Next time I will cut the cheese in half.
My mom made this casserole my whole life. This one is just a little different (as my mom uses crushed tortilla chips instead of corn tortillas) but It's almost better than hers. I added fresh, diced jalapenos to the green chilies and added garlic and cumin to the beef mixture. I also used ground turkey instead of ground beef. Great recipe!
My family really liked this dish. I did add some garlic powder and ground cumin to it when browning the beef, and I served it along with sour cream. It even tastes better the next day!
I love this! I cooked the onions with the meat. Added an extra can of green chiles and used cheddar cheese instead. Next time I may use monterey jack. I also seasoned my meat with salt, pepper and garlic powder. This needs to be doubled for a 9x13 pan.
