This recipe turned out great. The whole family enjoyef thoroughly. I made a couple of changes, I sliced the peppers (1 red and 2 green) in to thin strips and sauteed on medium while cooking the meat then added them along with about a cup of Mexican blend cheese to the meat while still in the pan. Stirred until the cheese was melted, then added the meat to the dish as instucted. All in all, a great success!

We had this delicious casserole for dinner tonight. I halved the recipe for the two of us and used some taco meat I had left over from tacos the other night. Perfect. We loved this recipe and it is so quick and easy. I may sub chopped green chilies for the green pepper next time. Lots of possibilities. Volunteer Field Editor

Yes, definitely could be cut in half. I used a 9 x 9 dish.

Can this recipe be cut in half for a 21 x 21 cm baking dish?

My husband and I love this casserole. It is quick, easy, and yummy! It has become my go to recipe for our taco Tuesday meals. Thanks for sharing!

This was very good but if not entirely eaten you can’t reheat with sour cream and lettuce on top. Much easier to make tacos and let everyone do their own thing - adding whatever ingredients they wish. If you’re sure you’re entire the entire casserole will be eaten this is a great recipe.

This was a very good casserole. For those who have hunters in the family, I used ground deer meat instead ofhamburger. My husband loved this dish!

Have made this a couple of times and it was quite tasty. Kind of like taco pie.

I am sure this is tasty but I don't understand why one would not use corn tortillas for this recipe. There is no resemblance to a taco otherwise. Tacos are traditionally not made with seasoning. Usually they are topped with pico de gallo and optional lime wedges. If you must use seasoning make your own. I use chile powder, cumin and oregano when making my enchilada sauce. If you want more flavor add onion, chicken or beef broth instead of salsa.Our tacos are fried or broiled pulled pork (carnitas) or shredded beef (carne asada). All use corn tortilla.

I've tried both topping but the underneath side doesn't get done. Stays soggy. What am i doing wrong?
