"This was really good & easy to make. A keeper."
"I got told by my son to put this in the regular recipe rotation! Easily made this with homemade mashed potatoes and left out the olives (because I don't care for them!) Great tasting as leftovers, too."
"Hey we love this recipe TeriOnThe Sandbar..I just substitute leftover mashed potatoes and use a home made taco seasoning mix. It's not a hard substitute and it turns out great!"
"This is GREAT! I would like to say too, that people who write such stupid reviews and talk about "ME ME ME" don't need to leave reviews. TeriOnTheSandbar, I'm so happy that you always try to use real food, but really??? Maybe next time you should just stick with Facebook..."
"Could you get any more processed? Packaged seasoning mix? I know there are no restrictions about these things with "Taste of Home," but at my house, we try to always use real food and packaged seasoning mix is not on that list, nor are instant mashed potatoes! Would welcome a recipe like this IF I could know what I was eating."
