mmm mmm YUM!! Very good, we loved the Mexican flare! I just used 1 lb of lean ground beef with a whole package of taco seasoning. Wonderful zingy flavour. I had no Mexican mix cheese in, so I filled them with parmesan, it worked well, but will try it sometime with the proper cheese. and used a nice zingy salsa. Juicy, messy, wonderful, we ate two and will enjoy two from the freezer another day! Thanks for posting, will be making these again!
