Quite yummy! Tweaked with a little more taco seasoning and added 1/2 cup jarred salsa. Topped off with shredded cheddar and sour cream. Definitely a keeper!

My husband really loves this dish! I make a little toppings bar to go along with it and the kids add what they want-tomatoes, Fritos, cheese, green onions and cilantro. Really good! Thanks for sharing.

I’ve made this recipe three times already; twice with ground beef and once with ground pork. This had become one of my family favorite quick and easy meals.
