As written, it's probably great for those with kids, but we like it spicier and it still gets 5 stars from me because the recipe itself is great & it's easy to add more spices. Anyhoo, I didn't use any oregano or salt or shredded cheese, and I used 8oz can tomato sauce, 1/2 cup water, a 1/2 packet taco seasoning, 2 tsp jarred minced garlic, 1/2 Tblsp chili powder, 1 cup frozen chopped onion, 3 cups frozen white corn (love corn), 1 1/3 cups uncooked macaroni (I cooked it separately in a microwave Fasta Pasta cooker), 4 oz reduced fat cream cheese (not a cream cheese fan at all, but it was GREAT here) and used 1.25 lb ground turkey instead of beef. A big change was that I thought I had canned tomatoes on hand, but didn't, so instead I used 1 cup hot Pace Picante chunky salsa. Hey, it's got tomatoes in it, right? Yeeow, that was spicy, the spicy-lovin' hubby was in heaven. That was why I added cream cheese, I was trying to tame the spiciness, but the spiciness tamed down the next day as leftovers. So delicious, I'll be making this again, and it's so easy. I'm a picky eater and I don't like meals that take hours to make, so I'm pleased as punch with this recipe.
