Reviews forFiesta Beef & Noodle Skillet
"Good concept but too many changes to increase recipe size for normal portion size and give it a major flavor boost and 1 cup of cheese is a tease. Like I said good concept but be prepared to use your imagine...Foot note; Don't ever measure cheese. Go by eyesight and figure you have to at least double the amount."
"This dish is delicious and a family favorite. It definitely needed more taco seasoning than the recipe called for. I always make it as a double batch and add at least a package of taco seasoning to it. YUM!!"
"This recipe was delicious in my whole entire family loved it and ate all of it up. The only thing I did different was used a whole package of taco seasoning Instead of the 1 teaspoon. I will be doubling the recipe next time so I have some to freeze because it was so quick and easy to put together and with 6 serving recipe it was not enough."
"Just not memorable. Very average family night dinner."
"What a great recipe! easy to prepare and very flexible if more heat is desired. A keeper"
