My family and I tried this recipe last night. We have a few picky eaters, and it was a favorite with even the pickiest eater. It is definitely one of my new favorite recipes; although, I omitted the olives. It was a great recipe and very easy! I would recommend to anyone!
I was very skeptical when I first saw this recipe. It was absolutely incredible!! The only thing I did different was omit the chili powder because I was concerned it would be too spicy with the taco seasoning. Next time I will try adding it. But, even if you don't like the chili powder, it's a really good recipe that will now become a regular in our house!!
Hubby loves this meal. I use home made mashed potatoes and regular canned for frozen corn and omit the olives. That keeps the kids happy. This recipe is a nice change from regular shepherd's pie.
This is so easy to make and one of my husband's favorite meals.
easy enough but kind of boring. maybe add some beans or some mushrooms for more texture.
