My grandkids always ask me to make this dish, which is sort of like chili in a pan. I came up with the recipe one day using just ingredients I had on hand. It was an instant hit. —Mary Lou Wills, La Plata, Maryland

"Made this for dinner tonight and will not make again. Celery, onion and pepper would have been better sauteed with the beef. Mozzarella and parm gave it an odd taste. Would have been better with cheddar or even jack cheese."

"I made this as directed with the following changes: no celery, medium salsa, no Parmesan, and used pepper jack cheese. It definitely had some heat but tasted really good."

"It was fantastic!"

"Very poor taste. It's a mix of too many flavors that do not compliment each other. Maybe it was the brand of salsa I used that did not suit the recipe."

"My husband and I both loved this recipe! I'm not a fan of creamed corn, so I was leery about how it would taste, but it was fabulous! I followed the recipe exactly as printed, next time I'm going to use ground turkey like MorganM did - great subsitution! Definitely a keeper recipe!"
