I added taco seasoning and used a can of cheese soup instead of the enchilada sauce. It was excellent! Will definitely make again. Read More

I tweaked this recipe slightly as I could tell that there wasn't much flavor going on. Made as written it would be very family/kid friendly. Here are my changes and suggestions. I added a small chopped onion and 3 minced garlic cloves to the ground beef while browning. I used 10 ounces of ground beef and 6 ounces chorizo. This was really the only spice in this casserole. If made again I'd add chili powder and cumin in addition to the chorizo. I would also leave the foil OFF the last 10 minutes of cooking as the casserole was a little too soupy for our preference. PAM made clean-up a breeze! Read More

This turned out perfect! I found Birds Eye Southwest Vegetable Mix with corn black beans mild poblano chilies red peppers and roasted onions. I also used ground turkey. Should I take away one star for the changes? No it's that good. Read More

Another success with the seniors here in Lemoore. If it is a casserole or soup we usually have success as they are a comfort loving bunch of seniors! Read More

This was very good. I did tweak the recipe based on some of the reviews. I added taco seasoning and I pulled the foil off for the last 10 minutes. My grocery store did not have the bag of frozen southwest veggies so I just used a fresh red pepper can of corn and a can of black beans. It still turned out amazing. Read More

We liked it but will make the ground beef with taco seasoning next time to give it a little more flavor on the beef. Read More

I really liked this recipe and we have enough leftovers for several days! I made a few small changes for more flavor. I used lean ground turkey instead of beef and I added some chopped onion chili powder and cumin to the turkey while browning. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Loved the recipe but we had to help it evolve a bit in order to have it fit our families food preferences. As a recipe it has a great base and leaves a lot of room to fiddle with it making it perfect for each and every taste desired. It was such a fun and easy recipe even my teenagers had fun making it into our own go-to flavorite foods for something quick and easy. Anyone can make it work even if you use the basic recipe you can't lose. Add a little flair to customize the flavor to your liking. Either way it's a win in our cookbook for sure. Read More
