I liked the combination of ingredients and was happy with the overall flavor. However, the recipe instructions are lacking and might be confusing for a beginner cook so my star rating reflects that. The directions don't mention where to add the rotel/ salsa. I used rotel tomatoes and utilized the juice as part of the required liquid in the taco seasoning. I also added chopped green onions and cilantro.
