This was really great... very easy too! I didn't have any flour tortillas so I used 3 cups of elbow macaroni measured before cooking. It worked well with a little leftover. I made the recipe for 10 since there were guys over to play guitars and jam a little with my boyfriend. It made ALOT but they devoured it and had 3 bowls each which left just enough for one bowl for myself and a little leftover for lunch. I added chopped onion chopped garlic cayenne and a no salt organic seasoning which I picked up at Costco some time back and this really turned out tasty! Read More

This recipe was ok only. I made it as written but it would need some changes to make it more to my liking. Taco seasoning would help add some zip. My flour tortillas stuck together and gummed up a bit so I wouldn't add them into the skillet next time. I was thinking that corn tortillas would possibly work better. That being said my family did eat every bite. I think I may try it again with some changes. Read More

this recipie was from a magazine so i was going to add it but looks like that was already done. but i have to say this recipie is really really good exept i didnt use tortillas because i thought that they would absorb the soup part and get to soggy. so instead i used tortilla CHIPS. this turned out well. it gave it and extra crunch here and there. i also found that this recipie is easy to eat as a dip sort of thing. i ate it like a dip with the tortilla chips also. all in all i thought this recipie was great and that is the only thing i changed! = Read More

I used leftover seasoned taco meat in this recipe other than that I made no changes. Good base recipe next time I'd goose it up a bit with more add-in's. Even with the seasoned taco meat I used it was still bland. I made little bowls of shredded lettuce chopped black olives chopped green onion diced tomatoes and reduced fat sour cream as toppings for this dish. Each of us was able to top our serving with what we liked. Read More

Big hit with the family. I also added drained diced tomato and chili beans to bulk it up and add a bit more protein. We loved it. Read More

I have been making this for years. It's always a big hit with guys and it's super quick and easy. If you don't like soggy tortillas then this isn't for you but personally that's my favorite part. Read More

I think that this dish is so simple yet so amazing. For it being so versatile I keep it simple and stick to the recipe(which is a rarity in and of itself). However instead of adding the tortilla chips in WITH the Mexican/beef combo yummy stuff for fear of them getting soggy I turn this into a dip and let the kids chow down from their own bowls full of it! Delicious and three thumbs up! Read More
