  1. This was a very tasty meal - I will plan on making this again in the future - thank you for posting.
  2. Loved it! I did add a 1/2 a small onion diced and about a clove of chopped garlic to the beef. I also used two 8.5 oz packages of cornbread and spread it over top of the chili in a 9x11 pan. Put the cheese on the chili first, then the cornbread mixture. It was delicious! My kids (8 & 3) loved it. Had it leftover for lunch today and it was just as good! Will freeze single size portions of what is left for future lunch or dinner. Thank you!
  3. I cooked this today for the first time and it is now a new family favorite. Wow wow wow delicious. I did throw in half an onion and a tomato because it needed to be eaten and seeing as my dh is a vegetarian I used veggie crumbles instead of ground beef. Everyone loved it, it was pretty simple to cook and baked quickly. I'd give it more stars if I could!
  4. I did this one right down to the optional green onions, although I cut back a little on the chili powder, & it was a very OUTSTANDING casserole! I did use a mild salsa (great for us), & we still loved it! Thanks for sharing ~ It's definitely a keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed for Please Review My Recipe cooking game]
