      I made this on 1/23/10 for mine and SO's dinner. I cheated a bit when making this recipe, leftovers from Southern Macaroni Pie was used. And for the taco seasoning, Mucho Gusto Taco Seasoning Mix was used. The cheese that was used for this recipe, was a blend of six different types of Mexican cheese. My SO and both thought that this could be " Kicked Up " a bit. If this is made again, I'm going to add some crushed red pepper flakes when cooking the ground beef. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

      Definitely quick and easy - and tasty too. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, but otherwise made as directed. This had a really nice flavor that really surprised me. Thanks.
