brettnleosmom 1 month agoI took another cook's advice and added taco seasoning to the meat to give the dish some more kick. The casserole is good, though it makes a lot. It took my family of four several days to finish it, and we were getting tired of it after the third serving. I suggest halving the recipe if your kids are younger and you don't want tons of leftovers.

Billnjoyc 2 years agoMy family enjoyed this so much... Great flavor.. I added green chilies instead of the green pepper. Just because I don't care for them. Added olives and after it was cooked I added chives. Yummy. Thanks for the recipe!
StregaDiCucina 4 years agoI even added a thin layer of diced tomato for extra chunky feel! This dish is especially great with a dab of sour cream. [I posted this recipe.]
