Reviews for Makeover Nacho Beef Bake
"Kids loved it. We did bake dough first then added meat mixture cooked for 5 min. just to melt cheese."
"Nice change and perfect for a summer meal."
"This has great flavor but the dough didn't cook on the bottom. Next time, I will try and bake the crust first, add the ingredients and bake until cheese melts. Then add the lettuce and tomatoes. I will try this again. We loved the flavor and it was fun---if we didn't have to scrape off the raw dough. ;)"
"Fresh and full of flavor !"
"Kids LOVED this! didn't go low fat - used Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese and drizzled each slice w/mild taco sauce - awesome idea to use for home daycare -"
