    It was dry and bland. Next time I will add chili powder , cumin and sour cream.

    My family loved this and it couldn’t have been easier!!! I put hot sauce on the table and they each adjusted their own heat.

    not very good. missing a lot. too heavy on the corn. Idon't buy canned vegetables. I used frozen corn. the tortillas seemed to make it worse. will not make this one again.

    This was average. I don't keep taco sauce on hand so I used salsa. I found it to be very dry and very bland. I added some water-about a 2/3 c.--to it to sauce it a little and then the corn tortillas just kind of turned into mush. I doubt I will make it again, but if I did I'd add a package of taco seasoning to boost the flavor.

    This was really good and so easy to make. I used Brigid Nelson's idea and used it as a dip with tortilla chips. I also added a can of black beans and a chopped green bell pepper I used hot taco sauce and left out the hot sauce. The amount of heat was perfect by the time the taco sauce was added to all the other ingredients it wasn't hot at all. Hot sauce was passed at the table.

    We love it! My sister makes this about once every couple weeks, her two young kids gobble it up! I just made it for my family and used a smaller can of corn and added black beans (who couldn't use some extra fiber). It's yummy!
