Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This is so easy to make and because it is mostly done in the crockpot ahead of time, can be on the table in minutes. I added about 1/8 tsp of red pepper flakes as well to spice it up even more. I also used a mixture of cheddar and jack cheese and popped the dish in the microwave for just a few seconds to melt the cheese. This is a keeper. It's simple enough that even the kids can make it, so it's going into their cookbooks as well."
"It has been a challenge to get my son to eat something besides bread and cheese since he was very young. It is not as bad as it used to be but he is by far the pickiest eater in my family. So when he likes something new, it goes down in the record book. He loved this, riffraff. We all loved it but it is more noteworthy to me because he loved it. I used 2 t. dried oregano, 1/2 t. cumin and 1/2 of a 15 oz. can tomato sauce. We each liked different toppings so we could please ourselves. Thanks for sharing this recipe."
"Love these nachos with beef sauce and toppings! I added some jalapeno to the sauce."
"Love the name of this! I had to change a few things to reduce to 2 servings: first I used ground turkey, added 1 tablespoon Recipe #38756 for spices, used 1 cup V-8 in place of tomato sauce and water, and a few squirts from a tube of tomato paste for a great "meat" sauce. In the toppings I subbed black olives for green pepper( one of my faves vs. heartburn LOL), and used Recipe #39350 to save fat and calories! This is a fiesta on a plate! Thanks for posting riffraff. Made for When It's Hot Tag Game."
"My son LOVED this. We served it 3 different ways at our house- over Fritos, over tortilla chips and in tortillas - and they were all good. I used 2 tablespoonfuls of cumin and 1 tablespoon of oregano. I also added a can of diced green chiles. This stuff was GREAT! I also posted this to my Facebook page and got lots of inquiries about the name!"
"This made a nice easy taco meat. I cut back slightly on the sugar."
"Delicious! Great recipe riff! This recipe was simple enough and easy to make. Nice mexican flavor.A bit sweet but still delicious. I think it would make for a nice spaghetti sauce too. Thanks for sharing riff! "
"This was a great meal to serve on our "late" day. My husband was surprised that the meat tasted a lot like chili. We all enjoyed it, thank you!"
"Riff......we loved this recipe, and I love the name! :-) I made this dish as you instructed except I used Splenda and cut the amount to 1 Tbsp. It worked well for us. I used regular chili powder since it had the oregano and garlic powder already added. The flavors were really delightful. This is an easy recipe to make. Easy and clear directions made sure that I didn't mess up! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. I have already printed it out for my t&t cookbook."
"A bit too sweet for our taste."
