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

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.

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.

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!

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.
