"Because I wanted it to taste like tamales, I subbed corn tortillas instead of the whole wheat tortillas. Took it to a potluck and didn't bring any home."

"I needed a quick ground beef recipe tonight that didn't include pasta and this fit wonderfully! I only had one can of tomato sauce, so I substituted one cup of spaghetti sauce and I added an extra cup of frozen sweet corn. I baked it in a 9x11 dish without problems. It will easily feed our family of four two meals this week."
