  1. It was really tasty. I used taco sauce instead of salsa, added corn and black beans and topped with sour cream and shredded lettuce
  2. This was very tasty. It was very easy to make and we added sour cream on the top.
  3. I love this! I add a can each of black beans & corn to the beef & onion mixture along with the salsa, letting it simmer for a few minutes before layering over the potatoes. I skip the bell pepper if I don't have one on hand, and it's still delicious.<br/><br/>This is very tasty! Two out of three of my kids agree, and the third one doesn't like much of anything. It's also quick & easy. Thanks for a great recipe!
  4. We were in the mood for something spicy after all the rich Thanksgiving fare, so I chose this for a quick meal. It's great, especially since most people usually have all the ingredients on hand. I cut the butter down to 2 Tbls. and used 1/2 ground turkey with 1/2 lean ground beef and topped with reduced-fat cheddar cheese. I sauteed the onion and pepper together with the meat. This would be good with corn &/or black beans added in. Tasty, quick weeknight meal! Thanks for sharing!
  5. This was great. We added black beans & corn.


  1. Well, I thought this was FABULOUS, although of course I made some changes. Used 2 white potatoes and 2 sweet potatoes, because we love sweet potatoes with mexican spices. Used veggie crumbles instead of beef, and one packet of dry taco seasoning (wonder if the 8 oz. was supposed to be .8 oz?). At any rate, easy and yummy.
