    Terri Newell's Note:

    My 6 year old daughter says this is the best thing she's tasted in her whole life ! That's high praise from a normally fussy child, so this recipe is definitely a do-over.

      This was a great base recipe!! I added onions and garlic to the beef when I put in the corn & taco seasoning. I felt the beef was a bit dry for my DH's liking so I added about 1/3 cup beef gravy and some red pepper paste to increase the heat. I already had the pots boiling so I left the beef on low heat while I mashed the potatoes which I did as I normally do - sour cream, butter, roasted garlic, salt, pepper, and left over boiling water to make it the right consistency. After I had it all assembled I spinkled cayenne and garlic salt on top. My husband had two servings and will also enjoy eating the leftovers later this weekend. Thanks for a great dinner!!

      Very tasty family meal! I made just a couple of changes: I sauteed a small onion with the beef, then added a drained can of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies. The rest was as written, with a sprinkling of saved taco seasoning over top of the mashed potatoes for color. The teenagers loved it and said it was better than Taco Bell.... High praise, indeed! :)

      This was a big hit. I used 1/2 lb. ground turkey and added chopped squash and zuchini. We got 6 servings from this. Thanks Terri Newell!
