Absolutely wonderful recipe. Smells so good while it is cooking. Great leftovers too. I also use sirloin strips instead of ground beef sometimes.
My family and I love this. The first time I made this, I used brown sugar because I didn't realize until the very last minute that I was out of granulated. When I made it the second time, I decided to stick with the brown sugar, since it tasted great the first time around.
Very good for a casserole dish (I am normally not a fan). I made a few changes - a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes and chiles, more black pepper, some cayenne added to beef/tomato mixture (just to taste) and garlic powder mixed in with the noodles, sour cream and green onions. My comfort food loving BF drooled, always a good thing.
This recipe is apparently one of the most requested from Southern Living Magazine, and there is a reason why--it is FANTASTIC. I used full fat cheese. It's a little different than the ho-hum Italian beef bakes. Thanks for making sure everyone has this one here!
I was disappointed with this one. It sounded like one I would really enjoy...but we didn’t. It was too cheesy for my wife, though I loved the cheese...but the taste of it wasn’t so good. I followed the directions exactly except for the chilies...maybe that’s what made it not taste so good. I may try it again with them and see.
Bec, this is an excellent recipe! I added some chopped onions and garlic powder to the ground beef and I didn't use all of the tomato paste.I also increased the noodles to about 12 oz. so I could have enough for leftovers. Thanks for a great recipe...this is a keeper!
This is so good! DH isn't too fond of chicken, so I'm always looking for dishes to make with beef. This was definitely a winner! Had just enough spice to it. Thanks for sharing.
