Tasty recipe! This last time I made it, I left out the taco seasoning and substituted sharp cheddar and medium salsa.

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.

Quick and easy! My picky eaters gobbled it right up, and it took me minutes after a busy day of work to make. It’s cold and grey outside, and this is the perfect comfort food for nights like this.

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.

What a great recipe! Easy to prepare and very flexible if more heat is desired. A keeper
