Reviews forMexi-Mac Skillet
"Great dish! I made a few adaptations. I wanted a heavier pasta (double) ratio and to add kidney beans. To accommodate that I : Added half a a chili packet to beef/onion mixture and the other half to the spice mixture. I added another can of sauce and doubled the water, but used beef stock instead . A definite keeper!"
"I doubled everything in the recipe but the meat. This was delicious and I loved that I had leftovers to freeze by doing this."
"I doubled the noodles and tomato sauce."
"easy to make and I thought it tasted pretty good, but the wife didn't care for the tomatoes, so unfortunately, probably won't make this one again."
"easy and excellent flavor."
"This was very good and easy to make. I pre-cooked the noodles and also made many of the changes listed, such as green pepper, olives, and minced garlic."
"very easy, change it up a little, used velvetta, cut back on the oregano. This is a go to when I want fast comfort food."
"Very good and easy to make. I added half a green pepper, diced. About a dozen black olives, sliced and a half teaspoon of cumin. I used a 14 1/2 oz can of corn, drained and used the liquid in place of the water. I used mexican blend cheese instead of cheddar. Will make this again for sure."
