MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 1, 2011

"I have made this dish twice. Very tasty! However, I didn't make it in the microwave. I browned the onion and hamburger on the stove, then put it in a baking dish and baked it for 15 min in the oven. I also put some corn chips on the bottom and in the middle layer. Great leftovers for me to take to work."
