    I made this last night. It was good, but not great. I just think it needs to be tweaked with the seasoning a little bit. I may just try a spicier taco seasoning or a homemade one. Straightforward to put together and adding guacamole on top is a nice finish. Just needs a little bit more bite. The family liked it and I will definitely make again.

    Fantastic recipe! I used ground beef and a small amount of chorizo, rotel tomatoes, and eliminated the olives. I also topped this with my standard guacamole recipe instead of the mixture in the recipe. I will definitely make this again!

    Always looking for paleo recipes that actually taste good! These were excellent! I used "no salt added" tomatoes and olives and plain avocado and it was still delicious.<br/><br/>Will be making this regularly.<br/><br/>Thanks so much for sharing!

    My younger son hates everything, but he ate two of these! I put cheddar on the kids' peppers and avocado on the adults'. Great recipe!

    My husband has been on the Paleo diet for about 3 weeks and he really misses his Mexican food. These were perfect. They had all of the right Mexican favors and they make great leftovers. Yum!
