I thought it needed more seasoning so I added some onions jalapenos a poblano and garnished with cilantro. Then it was real good. Hubby made a burrito out of it. Maybe next time I will add some beans too. Read More

I wasn't very impressed with this. It needed more flavor. It was kind of blah. I made it as directed. Read More

Easy quick and delicious. I sauteed chopped onions along with the meat and chose to use pinto beans instead of the corn..We liked it and will use the leftovers to make burritos. Read More

I made this for my family as written for a quick lunch and everyone loved it. I topped with pico and sour cream. This would be a good easy dish to teach kids. Read More

I made half a batch for the two of us and maybe I used too large a pan because there was not enough liquid to make it moist. I had to add more. I was thinking that maybe because I added corn straight from the cob didn't add as much moisture as frozen corn would have. I used my Taco Seasoning I from this site. Otherwise I did follow the recipe and the directions. This was good and I'll make it again with perhaps a few additions/changes. I loved the rice mixture in it! I will buy more of that rice! Love it! Thanks Uncle Ben! Read More

This is a very good recipe if you don't have taco shells and don't feel like running to the store. I had all the ingredients on hand. Husband went back for second helping always a positive sign. He said "this stuff is pretty good." I also think that this mixture could be served over a bed of lettuce and might try it the next time I make it. Read More

I would've given it 4 stars bc it's very salty to me but 3/4 of my family LOVED it. Like loved it so hard that one of them took all the leftovers with them when they went home. So I guess it was great! I used ground turkey and omitted the corn. Might've been nice with some black beans in it but it also might've turned it into another dish entirely. It was appreciated:) Thanks for sharing! Read More
