Everyone really reaved over this recipe. The only difference when I made it was that I used a pound of ground venison. But still this is a great dish. Thanks for a great new easy dinner recipe.

This was really good!!! I didn't have any tomato soup, but did have two cans of enchilada sauce (go figure) - used two cans of sauce and half a cup of water in place of the water and soup. YUMMY. This would make a GREAT burrito filling for leftovers. Thanks for sharing this!!!

Very Yummy! I used ground turkey and saute'd with garlic and onion and added a little taco seasoning to the meat. I also used onion soup mix since I didn't have veggie. Love how quick it was to make! Thank you for sharing!
