"Loved it,but we all got heartburn, why I don't know. I will make it again to see if we get heartburn again, other then that it was good. Thanks- Lee-Ann Treacher"

"I am going to make this for my son and his wife and five grandchildren. It looks like it will be something that they will love. I also long for the OLD TASTE OF HOME magazine."

"Made this today and added re-fried beans and Doritos as suggested by other reviewers. It didn't really make a pie for me. It was too loose. It ended up being more of a hot dip. It was pretty tasty though, so I suggested to my husband that we use this recipe as a hot dip for tortilla chips on game day. He said that's a good idea!"

"Needed a veggie, so I threw in some corn to the meat mixture and used doritos instead of regular tortilla chips. Kids loved it."
