This is a GREAT recipe - quick, easy, and I usually have the ingredients on hand. My family loves it, and we have it often. I make it as written in the recipe with the exception of using fresh instead of dried cilantro.

This recipe is amazing! We raise beef and so we have quite a few various types of beef to eat up. I've made it with different kinds of steaks and also with beef stew meat. It's delicious each time! My husband loves it too. The only variation I use it Barilla Whole Grain Linguini noodles instead of regular noodles. I've also used Fajita seasoning instead of taco, and we love that as well!

YUM! I didn't think we would like this but it has a lot of ingredients we use on a regular basis. So we decided to try it but without the noodles because it just seemed weird but after making it we loved it and wish we had made the noodles or at least rice. It isn't meant to eat alone.

My husband saw this recipe in the taste of home magazine and wanted to try it. It is a keeper. We topped it with more picante suuce. The fettaccine was very good with it also.

Whoa! This was delicious! I used 1/2 cup fire-roasted tomato salsa instead of the picante sauce and did not use the cilantro flakes. We'll be having leftovers tomorrow!~ Theresa

This dish was fantastic. I did not use noodles of any kind and I substituted chicken for the beef and used comino and chili powder for the mexican seasoning. I served the picante sauce on the side, which I would recommend for those that have picky eaters.
