“This delicious recipe is my copy-cat version of the most excellent Mexican food we ever had in Flagstaff, Arizona. The original recipe used beef instead of pork, but this comes mighty close to the same taste.” —Ariella Winn, Mesquite, Texas

Wonderful! Made for a party and everyone loved them! Put out chopped jalepenos , chopped onions and salsa for those that wanted but great just as recipe is. Will make again many times!

This was very good. I wasn't sure if 5 cans of green chilies was overdoing it for little kids, so I cut it back to 2. It was still yummy, but I'm sure it would be better with all of the chilies.

Wow, these were great! I added a can of pinto beans for texture and fiber. My daughter ate her serving spooned over crushed tortilla chips and that was really good too. I will definately make these again.

This was SO yummy! I put it together last night and put it in the fridge, then put it in the crockpot and turned it on...so easy and delicious! My family LOVED it too! The only changes I made...I just used a whole packet of taco seasoning mix and I added 1/2 an onion (because I needed to use it up!) We loved it and are happy there are leftovers! :)
