How can so few ingredients yield such a delicious meal? This is almost magical. A bit of time browning ground beef and boiling noodles, and just toss in the rest! Ole' Mexican flavored pasta! Not only is this a great tasting dish, but very a very eye-pleasing one as well; textural.... I just made this tonight, and as I speak (type?), my family is sitting in front of the television now, rubbing their full bellies! We will have this again soon, but next time I'll be sure to have a carton of sour cream ready. This dish nearly begs for a dollop of sour cream. Thanks Karen for a perfectly delicious dinner!
What a great dish that's easy and has only a few simple ingredients. The quick prep time and great flavor make this a super dish for busy week nights. Like several other reviewers, I added a dollop of sour cream when serving. Yum!
This was very simple & tasty! Didn't change anything, and served with sour cream and shredded lettuce on the side. Since there's only two of us, I had plenty to take for lunch the next day. Thanks, Karen!
This is great! We had some left over and I think it tasted even better the next day! I added some pinto beans (about 1/2 a can) just because I like lots of beans and I also stirred in a small carton of plain yogurt as a substitute for the sour cream that other reviewers recommended! Thanks for a great recipe that I will make over and over!
Excellent! Simple to make, few ingredients and tasted great! What more can you ask for? It's a keeper.
5 stars for flavor, appearance & ease of preparation. I used cottage cheese & ricotta as the layer cheese and Leerdammer for sprinkling on top. This is an excellent recipe that I will make again Thanks Karen for a repeater! Added Comments - I froze leftovers and had them tonight - 2 weeks later , the dinner was as delicious as the first night. First I defrosted in the fridge over night then I covered the dish with foil and baked in a 350F oven for 30 minutes - It would be even easier to Zap it, Thanks again Karen
This was great! I followed nmjunko's suggestion and used only one jar of salsa and a can of diced tomatoes. It was perfect for our tastes. I also tried assembling and then freezing it (without the top layer of cheese). It cooked up just fine and I added the top layer of cheese at the end of cooking time. I was able to assemble it while cooking dinner on another night and use it later on a night I knew I wouldn't have time to cook. Keepin' this recipe close at hand!
This is now one of my family's favorite dishes! Very tasty! We were fighting over left-overs! I added a little bit of garlic powder to the beef as it was browning, a dollop of sour cream to the top of each plateful, and black olives. Very, very delicious! I actually had this for a couple years in my recipebook I printed from Recipezaar, just unpacked it, because we moved down here to Georgia. Thanks for posting this!
A very simple, yet filling meal. I didn't have 2 jars of salsa, and instead used one jar and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies. I also sauteed onion with the ground beef. Husband loved his with a dollup of sour cream on top. Easy meal for a week night!
Great recipe Karen! Very easy and quick to make, especially on a weeknight. My family loved this one, and I will be keeping it in my files for future busy days...or even not busy days, lol.
