    My whole family LOVED it and cant wait to eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I did not make any changes except for one extra cup of cheese and beef broth instead of water. :)

    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 was very easy to make. Great for a weeknight meal.

    This turned out great and everyone really liked it. I used regular diced tomatoes (no chiles) and recipe #244839 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!

    I really liked this and it was so fast to make! I halved the recipe and it made 4 servings, so I would think that the full recipe feeds more like 7-8 (which makes the nutrition info a little better). I made as is using "Recipe #2642" for the taco seasoning and added a little beef bouillon with the water as well as using fat free evaporated milk. I will make this again since it makes such a quick meal! Thanks so much for posting!

    Great recipe! My whole family ate it which almost never happens. I used 1 lb of bulk hot sausage instead of the ground beef. I will definitely make this again soon!

    This is excellent 30 minute receipe. Next will use beef stock instead of water for more flavor, personal taste, I topped my bowl with hot sauce. Thanks for posting Jennie.
