In no way was I expecting something I would serve to company but I needed something quick for dinner. Putting this together was a breeze and I liked that it only used one pot. I didn't have any crushed tomatoes so I subbed diced tomato with chilies which I ran through the blender to puree. I was impressed with the amount of flavor for such a small amount of ingredients. The kids gobbled it right up and already want to know when I'll be making it again. We topped with sour cream diced tomatoes green onion and tortilla chips. This is will definitely be one of our "in a rush" go-to dinners. Read More

Was quick and easy to make and very filling. The flavors seemed a bit off for me though and neither my husband or my son were very fond of it. Read More

This was easy and delicious! My kids aren't too crazy about spice, so I think next time I will only use one seasoning packet (for a double batch), but otherwise amazing! Read More

The base recipe is a good start -- the noodles taste just like tacos and it's very filling. To put it over the top you need to add your favorite taco toppings as suggested in the "tips" section. Otherwise it's quick and easy. Read More

Great recipe! I LOVE Mexican food but I like to keep more variety in our meal rotations and never thought of this. Only thing j changed was that I used tomato sauce instead of crushed tomatoes. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More
