I love this recipe! I found this in Taste of Home quite a few years ago & have been making it ever since. I always have to double it :) And even then my family eats it all! Be careful not to over-bake because the cheese on top will get hard. I have served this to other families, at parties, and potlucks always with rave reviews. Sometimes we serve it with the lettuce & tomato but sometimes we don't.
Do yourself a favor and make a taco salad instead. I made this exactly as the recipe said; my first mistake. I usually add more spices to boost flavor. This was soooo bland. Easy is not always better.
Added canned corn and black beans and the family loved it!
Made for husband and me last night and both agreed was soooo much better than regular tacos! Much easier and not as messy to eat. Also added sour cream to top after baking. Will definately be making again!
We really liked this dish and I think it could be modified to add onions, green peppers, and corn too!
