Very good. Felt it was missing a little something, so I added red and wine vinegar, tomato paste, and a little hot sauce for kick. Tasty!

Fast, easy, and everyone enjoyed it. Used a can of Rotel and the higher amounts of spices, also Mexican oregano rather than dried cilantro. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is pretty good. I love that it doesn`t use packaged taco seasoning. I agree with others that it needs a bit of changes to be amazing. I will play around with it and am sure it will end up on my keeper list. Thanks for the great idea.

This was just okay, it was missing something. It has potential but it needs more flavor and it doesn't taste anything like tacos.

This made a nice lunch for us. I used a container of cooked and seasoned ground chuck (with carrots and tomatoes) from my freezer stash and followed the recipe starting with adding the tomatoe sauce. It went together in a flash.

This dish has a lot of potential. I didn't have ground sirloin, so I just used what I had in the fridge which was ground turkey. Overall I was impressed with how well the noodles cooked all together. It seems to be missing some "zing" to it. I think it is a very hearty meal, but I might try some more seasonings next time and maybe add black beans or corn to it. Overall, it was a tasty meal. Thanks for posting

It didn't have the flavor I was expecting. I would cook the noodles seperately and add more seasonings.

Going into this I had two questions: would everything REALLY fit into a skillet? and Is it REALLY a good idea to put uncooked macaroni in this? Yes and yes. This was really a delicious, easy dinner. Like an upscale hamburger helper. I did end up having to add some flour to thicken up the sauce. I also used cellentani noodles (which are like curly-cue elbow noodles). That fancied things up a bit :D Thanks for posting!

You have a very good recipe. Just a veggie and dinner is done. I followed your recipe just as you have posted. However I had to add about 1/4 cup of water. Next time I think I will decrease the Macaroni to 2 1/2 Cups. But hats off to you for a very good tasting meal. Hugs
