"This was just kind of ok to me. It lacked something. Maybe add another package of taco seasoning or something. I added some chili powder to my second helping & some crushed red pepper. It helped a bit but still lacked something. I don't think the potatoes are a good compliment to it. Maybe something crunchy on top like corn chips."

"I used salsa instead of tomato sauce and water. I also omitted the green peppers and soup and used Mexican cheese blend . It was a great idea, I just made it my own. Thank you"

"I left out tomato sauce and water and used salsa instead. I also left out soup milk and green pepper and used Mexican blend cheese. You had a really great idea and I just made it my own. Thank you."

"We loved this! The only change we made was to use star tator tots instead of the potatoes. It was not sloppy or a mess and my family of picky eaters loved it."
