It was pretty good. I did make a few changes. I added a can of black beans and sharp cheddar to the mixture and when it finished cooking I added a little more cheese to the topping. I will make this again. The family loved it.
I give it 5 for flavor, but it sure didn't stand up like the photo...mine was VERY soft and smooshy. Maybe needs some cornstarch in the mix. Will play with it.
Easy and delicious. We used ground beef instead of turkey. Couldn't find the chipotle bacon and cheese potatoes, so I just added about a tsp of chipotle seasoning to the bacon flavored potatoes. Made a full dinner for both of us, as well as enough left overs for a full dinner the next night. I'll definitely make this again.
There's nothing I hate more than olives, so I substituted black beans. I didn't have green chilis, so I left them out. I had plain Idahoan potatoes, so I added real bacon, cheese and taco seasoning. I also added more cheese on top while it "rested." I'm calling it Pastel de Pastor. ;)
It's not the prettiest meal, but the flavors are there. I'm a fan.
I loved this! I didn't have any instant potatoes so I used real mashed potatoes instead. (I know... the nerve when the recipe came from Idahoan! I promise to buy a box of Idahoan next time I shop though :P)
edit: I bought the Idahoan mini microwave cups... so I have redeemed myself!
I made this today and wow!! I thought it was very tasty. I will be making it again.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
