This was a five star recipe for the kids and a three star for the parents. I promised to make again next time hubby out of town. Really, the flavor is quite good if you are a taco/burrito fan. The only change I made to original recipe was to bake in loaf pan and cooked for 1 hour at 375 degrees. Thanks for a "kid keeper"!
