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!
I made this for a church function and about two thirds of the pan was eaten. I used ground turkey, but that was the only change I made. I feel there was more corn than needed. Perhaps adding other vegetables like peppers, onions, beans or tomatoes would keep with the Mexican vibe while rounding out the dish a little more. I'd make this again, but with more changes.
The only thing I added was about 1/2 cup of frozen chopped onion to the ground beef. Oh, and I used boxed "Loaded" mashed potatoes. It was good and hearty. I appreciate how filling it is!
I made this for lunch, reduced to two servings, using one very large potato, half a can of corn, a half pound of ground beef, with half a batch of Taco Bell Taco Seasoning Clone/Copycat and half a cup of cheese. As written, it was pretty good but not much more impressive than my usual shepherd's pie. But, once we added salsa and sour cream (and, in my husband's case, Taco Bell taco sauce), it was definitely something different. Thanks for bringing a nice twist to a classic dish!
All 3 children (plus hubby) loved it! I made it as posted just upped to 6 servings. My 4 yr old said it was a little spicy but ate his entire serving (just drank 2 glasses of milk to wash it down). Thanks for posting!
This is sooooo yummy! Made it as-is in the recipe (including adding some butter & milk to the potatoes). Just let it bake a little longer so it got a little crispier on top. Was a hit with the whole family. Will definitely make this again!
We found it very dry. Even though I love the taco seasoning, it just didn't work in this recipe. I won't be making this again.
What a great way to use up leftover potatoes! The only thing I did different is add the whole package of taco seasoning and added 1/3 cup water that it recommened to do and let it cook down with the corn...it turned out perfect...
