I felt that there wasn't enough spices to this recipe. Like the previous poster, I thought there was something "missing". If I made it again, I would skip the tomato sauce and add a jar of salsa, sprinkle the ground beef with some MExican Oregano, Cumin, chili powder & garlic, and skip the evaporated milk all together.
I chose this recipe for the Camera-less Chef Game 2007.And as the previous Chef,I used a 6 ounce can of tomato paste instead of the sauce.Instead of using a 2/3 cup of milk I only used 1/3, mixed with the beans it worked just fine.Since I really like cheese,I added about 1/2 cup more.I'm not sure if this will be made again,both my SO and I agreed that there was just something "missing" in the taste of the recipe."Keep Smiling :)"
Couldn't believe how yummy this was considering how EASY it was to put together. I had all the ingredients on hand and my BF was in the mood for something he could put lots and lots of sour cream on. This hit the spot. After reading the other reviews, I decided to substitute a 6 oz can of tomato paste for the tomato sauce so it would not be so runny. It worked out great...not runny at all... held together beautifully! I probably will not put crushed chips on top next time... they were not the greatest texture when I heated up some leftovers the next day but that is my preference. And I will probably add more cheese since my BF and I love cheese! Great, simple, tasty meal with a little side salad and salsa! Thanks!
