Recipe by Kris McCaslin
"Spicy ground beef casserole - it is sort of an enchilada in a bowl without the tortillas! To vary the amount of spiciness, add mild, medium, or hot salsa."

green bell pepper, chopped
green onions, chopped
1 (8 ounce) package
wide egg noodles
shredded Cheddar cheese
This is a good recipe. I didn't have noodles or green onions so I used elbow macaroni and a medium chopped onion instead. I sauteed the pepper and onion in 1T of vegetable oil for a few minutes. Then I added the ground beef and a packet of Taco seasoning mix. I used an entire jar of salsa, a heaping half cup of reduced fat sour cream and I didn't measure the shredded cheese. I just added as much as I liked on the top of the dish. I used a mexican blend of shredded cheese. This made more than four servings as I believe the macaroni made more than the noodles would have. Plus I used a large pepper. This was very tasty. Everyone liked it. I will definitely make this again and again.
Was a little bland for me. I like the idea of adding a package of taco seasoning mix.
This was extremely good! I did make a lot of changes to suit my taste. I added 1 very large clove of garlic (minced), to the ground beef, when I browned it. I used 90% lean meat. I also added 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 Tbls. chili powder and 1/2 tsp. ground cumin. I also added 1 small can of mild chopped green chilies. I didn't drain the meat after browning and I omitted the water. I served it over egg noodles with sour cream and shredded muenster cheese. If you love beef stroganoff and if you love chili...you'll love this dish, because it tastes like chili stroganoff!
My husband and I thought this a bit bland. I doubled the sour cream and added 1/2 cup more salsa with cilantro, as well as chili powder. I also tossed in a can of drained niblet corn and mixed in the cheese. I added the green peppers and onions right after cooking the meat as they needed longer to cook as well as for the flavors to be absorbed. Definately a quick and easy recipe. Will make again on a busy day!
This recipe was not as great as I thought it was going to be.1st of all,it was alot more work than it looked.Chopping the onion,gr.pepper,boiling the noodles,browning the meat,wow...that's alot of time for a weekday supper,which is when I made this. The noodles/mexican combo didn't really work for me either. Nobody in my family was raving over it. I have leftovers in my fridge as I write this.Sorry,just too much work for a so/so meal.
This is a great recipe! It taste even better the next day! My husband and I don't eat white pasta so I added some penne whole grain Healthy Harvest noodles. We both like spicy foods so we used a very spicy salsa. I have also made it at our family night dinner and everyone loved it.
This was awesome!! When I served it to my husband, he took a couple of bites and said, "This would be better with crunched up Doritos on top!" We tried and both agreed. Thanks for the recipe...it will stay in our recipe rotation!
Pretty good comfort food. I used hot, chunky salsa and 1 cup of cheese. Half a cup of cheese is not enough ;)
