A simple, satisfying main dish that our family enjoys. You can use reduced-fat cheeses and sour cream, but don't use the fat-free choices. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, sliced black olives, more salsa, and warmed tortillas.

Made for dinner tonight and loved it! Hubby ate it as well. :) I added a can of Bush's Grillin' Beans: Black Bean Fiesta and left out the onions and garlic (didn't have any). A tad bit bland but did have flavor. Will make again! Served with warmed flour tortillas. Leftovers tomorrow will be Nacho style! Makes a lot (serves more than 6)! Read More

Unfortunately this wasn't a hit in my family. It tasted like it should have been a topping for nachos and not a meal.:( Read More

Very good but I added rice and taco sauce because of the other reviews that I had seen saying it wasn't casserole enough. Added 2 cups of slighty undercooked white rice and served it on warm tortillas it was a hit:) Read More

Had Rotel and salsa on hand but just regular corn. I always have frozen onions and peppers for cooking on the fly so I used a cup of that rather than the onion in the recipe. We both enjoyed it. After reading the reviews we just served it in a bowl not unlike chili or hamburger helper in the consistency. Hubby said it was worth a repeat. May try the black bean idea I saw in one of the reviews. May try a few jalapenos next time. I think this is gonna be on our "comfort food" list. Read More

I wasn't crazy about this but I am giving it 4 stars because the rest of the family liked it. I was expecting it to be firmer..............like a casserole that you can cut out of the pan but instead it had to be spooned out. I made it into burrito filling and put it in warmed flour tortillas. Read More

We are on a low carb diet so I substituted a 7 oz can of green chilis for the corn. I used several spices while browning the ground beef chili powder hot chili flakes cumin seasoning salt etc. I forgot to put in the salsa but I used a 14 1/2 oz can of crushed tomatoes with cilantro and lime juice so it came out really good. The family liked it a lot and I would make it again. Read More

We had this for dinner last night and my hunny loved it. We served it as is with cornbread on the side. It had a little heat but not over the top. We really enjoyed it the first time and he enjoyed it as left overs today. I made exactly as state except I added 11 oz of mexican corn instead of 7oz. mostly just because my store didn't carry the smaller cans. Read More
