KRAFT Tex Mex Shredded Cheese
Wow! For a super easy dish, it def. deserves 5 stars. In the amount of time it took to prepare 7 sandwiches , I had a much more nutritious (and filling) meal. I sautéed the beef with onions and a small amount yellow peppers (chopped). Used bill echol's taco seasoning I recipe and only had canned corn and green beans (needed to go grocery shopping). Put some aside for the child with dairy allergies and added way more cheese than called for. We used our own smoked salsa. It would be better with frozen green beans. All kids and hubby liked! I think this would be too bland with just chili powder.
I added a little more flavouring. I feel that if it's southwestern there should be some spice. Added some onion and jalepeno. Very good
So delicious!! Made with 2 Tbsp taco seasoning and black beans instead of green and it was sooo good!! Will definitely make this again and recommend to everyone I know! :)
This got mixed reviews from my family. Hubby, me and one of three kids liked it. The other two kids kept asking "how many more bites do I have to eat?", but I think it was because of the green beans for one child and the chunky tomatoes from the salsa for my other non-veggie loving kid. I made it mostly as written. Since I didn't have instant rice, I made regular rice on the stove top and stirred it in. Instead of using a whole cup of water that the recipe called for because I precooked my rice, I waited and added 1/4 cup of water at a time when mixing in the precooked rice until it got to a good consistency (around 1/2 C total). It was a quick and easy recipe with items we already had in the house. I'll make it again.
I used drained canned corn instead. Might add more chili powder and a spicier salsa next time though. It was tasty, but could use a punch.
used the recipe as listed except I didn't have frozen green beans so I used one can drained instead. I think I used more salsa too. Very good and a nice change.
This recipe was a quick, relatively healthy, gluten free meal. Perfect for busy week nights. I took the advice of others and substituted 1 can (drained and rinsed) black beans for green beans to make it more "southwest". I think it made the dish a bit more hearty too. I added 1 T. taco seasoning to be sure it was spicy enough, and served in bowls with a dollop of sour cream. I think this would be great with the addition of sliced olives, also diced green chili as other reviewers mentioned. It's a keeper.
Love this! My kids all love this and we make it when we go camping too!
