I made this recipe but i changed a few things to make it to our family's taste. First of all I added yellow corn chips on the bottom like the recipe call for. Then for the ground beef I added two med sized cans of green peppers. I did not put sour cream in with the ground beef. I layered as follows: chips, ground beef, (2 cans) black beans, (1 large jar)pace chuncky salsa and mexican blend cheese. I repeated all the layers one more time. My husband said that it was a killer dish and he means that in a good way so I am making this again with my additions. Thanks for the recipe Read More

HUGE hit with the family. I had it in my head to make this for supper when I realized I didn't have a taco seasoning packet, nor did I have a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles. I opted to use spices from my rack: cayenne pepper, seasoning salt, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and italian seasoning. I followed other reviewers suggestions and used salsa instead of the canned tomatoes. Due to many reviews saying the dish comes out dry, I used 1 1/3 cup salsa and 2/3 cup water in addition to the 1 cup sour cream. I also added some diced black olives to the meat mixture before layering. A wonderfully yummy, mildy spicy enchilada tasting casserole. I have no doubt that if I had followed the recipe to a T (had I had the right ingredients) it would have turned out just as great. Read More

Good basic recipe to work from. Added fresh onion corn & garlic. Added chiles rather than the ones mixed in with the tomatoes. This added the much needed moisture. On top in the melting cheese I added sliced olives and green onions. Increased cooking time to 30 minutes. The family loved it. Thanks for a great starter recipe. Read More

I made this recipe thinking my kids would love it. After all it was like a taco. However it was not so. I do have one very picky eater and he was just not into it. Personally it was just OK for me. I made the recipe exactly as was listed but it just wasn't what I thought it was going to be. The chips were soggy and soaked up all the liquid which made the whole thing a little dry. I think it needs more meat and more cheese. Read More

I threw this together because plain ol' tacos sounded kinda boring. Turns out it was a good move! It was a big hit at my house made evident by the fact that it didn't last very long at all! Read More

The was EASY to throw together and my family LOVED it!!! It has just a little zing from the chili's and that perks up the whole dish. It's very filling and kind of fun to eat. We now eat this fairly often and it's the "last dinner" mean my kids request before leaving on vacations in summer! Read More

very good recipe-we changed it up a bit by not adding the tortilla chips until serving the beef mixture- it made it crunchy so my kids would eat it and still had a very nice taste to it! Read More

Everyone liked this. I was afraid to use the diced tomatoes with mild green chiles but I did and it was very good. My children also always have green olives on their tacos so I added green olives to the mixture. Read More

This recipe is great! My husband is a very picky eater so I invited my parents over so I wouldn't have left overs. there was barely enough of this stuff to go around everyone had at least 2 huge helpings. My husband even said I wasn't allowed to have anyone over when we ate it! Definatly making again! Emily Read More
