"We really liked this dish! I have a friend who thinks everything is hot including salsa so we put sour cream on top and she even thought it was delicious! I was out of milk so I used buttermilk."

"This recipe is a new favorite in our house. I agree with other reviewers and will increase the amount of taco seasoning next time but it was still delicious."

"Oh so good! I made 1/2 a recipe and changed 2 things...I used leftover chicken (worked very nice) and a 1/2 package of taco seasoning. I will make this again."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 18, 2014

"I really wanted to like this. Love pasta, love Mexican & love alfredo. Only changes made were, based on other reviews, added whole pkg. of taco seasoning & a 7 oz. can of green chilies. Sorry, but just tasted like a glorified mac & cheese."
