"Delicious and easy recipe that pleases a crowd. Made four of these for a big work lunch and it was a big hit with the whole team. Delivers good flavor without a bunch of time. Made them early and froze them until the day of."

"Great recipe for a quick and easy weeknight meal! I love the flexibility of this casserole, as you can add or subtract ingredients based on your family's tastes. I added green chiles and black beans to mine."

"This tasted great the first time I ate it. It doesn't reheat well at all, unless you like soggy tortillas. As long as you don't care about leftovers recipe taste great."

"Great starter recipe. I made it a second time and added taco seasoning, diced chilies and a can of Ro-tel along with the enchilada sauce to the beef mixture and let it simmer. When I put it together, I added a can of drained and rinsed black beans and Mexican corn over the beef mixture. Made a great recipe even better. This recipe is so versatile and can be easily altered to individual tastes and preferences."

"Easy to make and tastes great. The only change I made was the addition of green chiles to the meat mixture. I think this recipe can be flexible, so next time I may add some refried beans. Thanks for such a good recipe."

"Very easy & simple recipe to assemble. I used ground chicken instead of beef & substituted corn tortillas for the tortillas. Just as good the second time around!"

"This was a good casserole. One of the best taco casseroles I have had. Easy to make. Although I did not add salsa this time I may try it next time. When warming up leftovers it was just as good as the first time. Thanks!"

"My husband and I loved this recipe! I added a can of refried beans and a green pepper to it for some fiber and a green veggie. My husband said he thinks it could use more spice to it, so I will probably add a can of green chilies to it next time. It was easy to make and that's a big plus. Thanks for the great recipe!"
