Good, quick recipe. Had to add some diced tomatoes as only had 10 oz. Rotel. Found it a tad spicy, Could have been the brand of taco seasoning I used? NOTE: This makes a LOT. We are pretty big eaters. I would still say this makes 8 VERY generous-sized servings. A good thing for larger families but there are just 2 of us. I try to make recipes with 4-6 servings so we can eat that night and there are 2 leftover containers for work breaks. I have 5 leftover containers of this and they are packed FULL. Thanks for the recipe.

This turned out great and everyone really liked it. I used regular diced tomatoes (no chiles) and Amazing Taco Seasoning in place of the taco seasoning. I would say that it makes 8 large servings, not 4. A great dish that we will definitely be making again. Thx so much Mama Jennie!
