MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 27, 2013

I think something is wrong with the reciped. 2 pounds of ground beef seems like way too much meat. I made this last night and could bearly fit it into ta 2.8 liter dish. 2.8 liters is bigger than th 2.5 quart the recipe calls for. Also, 8 ounces of Taco Sauce was not enough. I added at least double that. I wonder if it should be 1 pound of ground beef. Can someone comment on this? After my husband added some hot sauce to it, he said it wasn't bad. I will attempt to make it again but with half the meet. Also, when done, it looks like it would serve 10 - 12 people.

This was awesome! I tweaked it a little and my whole family loved it! I browned the ground beef with onion in a skillet and then I was out of taco sauce and used a can of enchilda sauce. I fried the tortillas till browned. Layered it with the other ingredients and served with lettuce and tomatoes! It was never soggy. This is a quick and easy supper idea that your whole family will love!

personally I would never brown the beef in the microwave O_O I would brown in a skillet with onion, garlic, most likely season with a bit of paprika as my kids are young and don't like too much spice. Also I would agree to use corn chips over tortillas... they tend to get rather soggy in these types of dishes and the chips simply hold up better. I've also found ( maybe a personal taste lol ) that sharp cheddar usually gives these types of dishes a little more of a kick. Also, I would use a salsa ( preferably one with corn and black beans.. more of a chunkier ones and most likely drain about 1/4 of the juice...again to keep the dish from getting overly soggy) over the taco sauce to give the dish more of a texture and just generally better flavor than a taco sauce can get IMO.
