very bland. The dough topping soaked up the juices leaving rest of mixture very dry. Putting sour cream on something that comes right of the oven is not productive.

This was really good. I made a pound of taco-meat and mixed in the kidney beans right in the skillet. I put in in the casserole dish while still hot so I did not have the problem of it not baking in enough time. I also served the sour cream, olives, lettuce and tomato on the side.

This was a fun one to have the kids help out. Used Bisquick and substituted the beans with Nalley's Cheese Chili. I also leave the sour cream, lettuce etc on the side..

This was a great recipe for leftover taco meat. I added about a half a cup or so of homemade salsa to the beef mixture. Turned out pretty good. Also I had to cook the dish about 10 minutes more and the middle of the topping still wasn't completely done. But it was still very good and my family liked it. Thanks for the recipe! I will make it again next time I have extra taco meat.
