I found something similar to this years ago and have recently added my own spin. Here’s the outcome: an easy, cheesy meal your family can't get enough of. We don't have to tell them it's healthy. —Deborah Williams, Peoria, Arizona

To me nothing needed to be tweaked, my little family loves this recipe.

MY REVIEW

Since I love veggies, I threw in another 1/2 c. of onions. I added about 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning mix and another 2 T. water to give it a little more kick. I also substituted lean ground turkey for the beef and it was still just as delicious!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 10, 2008

I added a 1/2 t of salt along with 1/4 t of cumin and fresh celantro as a garnish
