I made this for our monday night "taco night" and at first i had to hear from the kids that they were going to hate it and they were prepared to eat something else. i made them try it and they LOVED it. It really was very good. i added some salsa and green chiles and used turkey meat. but it was good!!!

I made this last week and was glad that my husband liked it since I took one bite and didn't care for it. I used tortilla chips instead of the taco shells, but found it to be very dry and flavorless.

This was easy, delicious and filling. My picky 4 y/o ate his entire serving!! I used cheddar and jack cheese and chopped black olives (didn't have green). Will definitely make this again. Thanks!

This was just okay. The addition of stuffed green olives is beyond me and doesn't contribute anything to the dish except a salty, sour flavor. Next time I will leave it out.

I made this last night and it was a huge hit with DH and 3 kids! I used Taco Seasoning instead of the packaged taco seasoning and the flavor was fabulous. I also left off the tomatoes and olives (picky eaters wouldn't have cared for them). I used 1lb ground beef and one 15 oz can kidney beans. I substituted tortilla chips for the shells, as I was afraid the shells wouldn't be crisp enough. Thanks for posting!

UPDATE: I use Tomato Sauce and chili beans in addition to Taco Seasoning for the taco seasoning and it was declared a huge hit by my family.

This recipe was great. I used tortilla chips instead of taco shells. I didn't use the tomato and I used chopped olives in place of green olives. I just made this recipe for the sixteenth time, but instead of using the taco seasoning packet you buy at the store I used the homemade taco seasoning Taco Seasoning - Budget Friendly Seasoning for Tacos, Burritos... This recipe was good before, but using the homemade seasoning made it even more outstanding. I used 1/2 cup of the homemade seasoning in place of the store bought packet. Thanks for sharing.

This was a great way to use up broken taco shells. I added leftover white rice and 1/2 jar of salsa to the beef mixture. Served with black olives, sour cream and salsa on the side. It was yummy. Even my picky DD who refuses to eat the meat on nachos and tacos ate a fair helping and didn't complain!!

This was very good and the kids loved it. I used ground turkey instead of beef and chunky salsa instead of the tomato sauce just to sneak in a few extra veggies. I also substituted sliced black olives for the green, just a personal preference. I personally didn't care for the taco shells because they were a little on the chewy side but no one else complained. I thought the tomato wedges on top added a nice flavor and they looked pretty with the olives. I served with a little sour cream on top. This will go on the list of easy weeknight meals and will certainly be made again.

Oh, my gosh...this dish was so easy and delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of grated cheddar cheese in place of the jack, and sliced black olives in place of the green ones. DH raved and raved and asked me to be sure I made this dish again...and soon! It's a winner through and through.

This was very good! My whole family enjoyed it. Next time I will have to make more because there wasn't enough. I used ground turkey and added garlic to it. This is a definate keeper. Nice change of pace from everyday tacos.
