These were allright. To be fair, I made several changes - and I wish I hadn't. I appreciate reading all of the helpful reviews on here and agree that they are what makes Allrecipes unique. Having said this, I think there's a LOT to be said for trying a recipe as it's SUPPOSED to be. After having made significant changes, this is what I suggest: a) it doesn't matter if you sub a sm. can of diced chilies for green bell pepper - do whatever you prefer, b) I halved the corn, but am wondering if I could have added more, c) I only added 1/2 c. of taco sauce to my beef mixture, but could barely taste it (I'm thinking 2 c. worth would be a smidgin too much, but 1/2 c. just wasn't enough...) d) if adding, use the ENTIRE pkg. of taco seasoning (why waste half of it???) and e) DO NOT add your beans to your beef mixture! My biggest gripe is two-fold. Not only were these bland, they were also VERY beany (and I mean SUPER beany!!!). I think a good schmear of beans on each tortilla would have been spot on - you can always serve leftovers on the side. Now on to the kudos. :) I was afraid my chimis wouldn't crisp up in the oven but they did. My hubs even commented how impressed he was with the outcome. If you follow Nicole's directions, your chimis will be nice and crunchy. The key is to brush lightly with butter (too much butter will make them soggy) and bake in the upper half of your oven. Served with herbed corn (Edna Hoffman), this was a decent meal. Thanks for sharing, Nicole! :-)
