"This is my go-to recipe when I have leftover taco meat. I use whatever canned tomatoes I have on hand and it always comes out perfect."

"this was pretty good! I love taco flavored things. Such an interesting combination that goes together well. I too will probably add green peppers and onion to the meat next time I make it to give it some more flavor but it was good! Thank you for a great quick meal to make!"

"I made this part way last night and have just put it in the oven today. I added onions to the meat and more of the taco seasoning since my family likes a little spice. It is just baking now I will let you know how it turns out. Very easy to make which was great."
