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.
Very Bland. Needed something else, maybe diced tomatoes with chilies? Gonna have to pass on this recepie
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.
This is an excellent dish. I sautéed some onions and red bell pepper in the meat. That's the only change I made. Not only is this a very tasty dish, it also has eye appeal. Served with a fresh tossed salad with tomatoes direct from the garden.
I only made a couple changes to this recipe...I used canned vegetables, Velveta cheese and added fried/canned onion rings sprinkled in top. I also used more chili powder to give it an extra punch. I would recommend this to anyone. It was very easy and husband and 2 kids loved it!
Easy easy weeknight recipe. You can throw it together in just a few minutes
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.
Excellent, and quite easy. Used a couple of other reviewers' variations (taco seasoning vs chili powder, sautéed chopped onions & peppers with the ground beef), and used 3-year sharp cheddar instead of Kraft Tex Mex, whatever that is; also used brown rice instead of instant white; took a little longer, but came out a little less "corporate/instant", and VERY GOOD. Several reviewers have suggested that this could be spicier, so I would suggest using more seasoning or hotter salsa; might try this next time, but for a first try, we were very happy with this dish. A keeper.
