Reviews for Skillet Tacos
"The recipe as written was a little bland for me. I added some salt, cumin and chili powder. Pretty good weeknight recipe."
"We made this recipe for 8 servings, so I added a packet of taco seasoning to this recipe, and it was delicious! It even tasted better the next day as leftover!"
"This was an absolutely amazing dish! I was hesitant to make it because of the macaroni noodles, but they compliment the dish well. This is a welcomed healthy version of tacos. My roommate and I loved it and I will definitely make it again!"
"It was edible but seems to be missing something although I it didnt seem bland. I think it was that the pasta just didnt taste right with the other ingredients. My husband and I ate it."
"I doubled the recipe. I thought this was good...nothing special. Was surprised when my husband said he really liked it. Was even more surprised when my 2 year old, who we have trouble getting to eat supper, almost cleaned his plate! I had the leftovers the next day for lunch and it was so much better the next day!"
