This was pretty good. I needed to come up with something fast and had this saved in recipe box, decided to finally give it a try! At first I thought there was too much liquid, but it was just fine. I think my 10 year old niece would love this...she says loves tacos and is sick of spaghetti sauce so I think she would be into spaghetti fixed this way. My husband is taking the leftovers to work tomorrow, he put some corn on top and is going to mix it all together. Thanks for the recipe!
I've had a photocopy of this recipe for years and years. I used to make it all the time and then when I started using the internet for most of my recipes, my old stash of clipped recipes got pushed aside. I finally made it again and it's just as good as I remember... in fact, hubby has forsaken anything else I've made this week to eat leftovers of this. I used Taco Seasoning - Budget Friendly Seasoning for Tacos, Burritos.. for the taco seasoning. This is going into our book of favorite recipes for sure!
