My DH really, really enjoys this, while I just find it OK. ;) I adopted this recipe from the RecipeZaar account in August 2006, and after I prepared it Sept. 4, 2006, I made some minor changes (adding the size of canned ingredients, adding onions in with the meat mixture, etc). Original poster's comments: "This is more of a Tex Mex recipe than Mexican. Truly delicious!"

Made this last night to satisfy a Mexican craving. I did one tray with the chili and one without. It was good, satisfying food. I didn't find it spicy at all. I did use chili beans instead of the pinto beans and didn't add the tomato sauce, using the sauce from the chili beans instead. My family ate it up!

Great recipe! I made this using the taco seasoning and found it to be a little on the salty side. Also, next time I will cook the onions with the meat so that they are not so crunchy. This would be a great way to use up leftover homemade chili!

My husband loved this recipe. It tasted very good and not as spicy as I thought it would. I used the taco seasoning in the ground beef. We topped it with lettuce, tomato and sour cream. I will make this recipe again.
