This nicely spiced entree uses several of my family's favorite ingredients, including macaroni, kidney beans, tomatoes and cheese. Just add a green salad for a complete meal. —Marlene Wilson of Rolla, North Dakota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 1, 2012

Very good recipe, easy to through together. I completely forgot to add the green chilies I don't think I would have liked them anyway. Next time I will add Del Monte Fiesta Corn to the dish! My husband and I really enjoyed this.

A good weeknight meal

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2012

My three boys loved this! We used crushed tomatoes instead of diced, ground turkey instead of beef and we only had 1/4 cup of Mexican cheese, so we supplemented with Mozzarella and it was still delicious! The boys were asking for seconds! This is a keeper.

We love this dish. I drain the diced tomatoes and replace the juice with enchilada sauce. It gives it a different flavor.
