Taco Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
This is a decent recipe. Overall the taste was good. Some changes I made: more seasoning. The condensed tomato soup is fairly plain, it is in desperate need of seasoning. If I had salsa I probably would have used it. I added a can of pinto beans to pump up the recipe. Beef, cheese and pasta sounded far to plain alone. I substituted fresh chopped tomatoes over the canned diced. I also browned onions and green peppers in olive oil on the stove top before adding it to the mix. I feel there is no need for 2 different types of cheeses. A taco cheese blend will work just fine. After draining the pasta I returned it into my large pot and added the sauce mixture on top of it and mixed all the ingredients together (including the cheese) before putting it in the 9x13 inch pan. As others have suggested I added only some chips to the top with more cheese. I added more fresh chips right before serving so they would maintain their crunch. In the end after trying it this once I would add some type of spicy ingredient (this recipe is severely lacking in that department) and switching from the pasta to rice. The macaroni did not mesh well with the crunch of the chips in my opinion.

Pigs in a Blanket

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
Always a favorite classic. I personally like to spice mine up by adding pieces of bacon. Also if I'm looking into making it for dinner I like to add hotdog Chile into the pan with the pigs in a blanket and of course top it all with cheese. Brushing the top of the crescent rolls with egg wash will help the crescents get a beautiful golden brown
