    Very tasty. Had it on a salad

    I have made this recipe a few times now. It is absolutely delicious. Wonderful flavors! I tried using Chorizo instead of the ground beef and wow what a difference maker. It brought such a yummy smoky flavor to this dish. I have also used it as my meat mixture for nachos. Poured a little queso on top. Just yummy!

    I added more of each of the suggested spices, cracked pepper and tomato paste for a richer flavor. Good recipe, quick and easy, thanks

    Fantastic. I wish I would have added in some chopped jalapeño peppers to add a little spice.

    When I made this rather than using the nacho chips I used the Frito-Lay chips crushed at the end you can use sour cream after today to course and a little chives cilantro Birds it going down hope you all can try to enjoy let me know how you like it thank you Anna Rodriguez

    Love! Delicous way to revamp a classic taco! 10 months ago
    I’ll give is a 4.5! But I didn’t really follow the recipe to a T. I’m not a vegetarian so I added ground turkey and I also added a can of diced tomatoes. I forgot to purchase tortilla chips but I had corn tortillas so I fried them to make tortilla chips. I wish I knew a way to prevent the tortilla chips from being soggy after it’s baked. Perhaps the liquid from my diced tomatoes and the beans made the chips a little soggy. The flavor was excellent and I definitely added way more cumin, paprika and chili powder than was suggested. I also add a garlic powder. I would also say that the recipe calls for more cheese to live up to its name. There wasn’t much cheese in my opinion.

    Delicious! Followed the recipe closely (though I forgot to buy kidney beans and used 1 can of corn instead of 1c frozen corn), and it turned out great! Love the different textures of tortilla chips, from crunchy to soft. Will make again, though not great for leftovers/meal prepping (tortilla chips all get soggy).

    Made this tonight, so good and plenty to feed at least four. I used taco seasoning on some hamburger to add to the flavor.

    Tasted great. I added the shredded lettuce after it finished baking, plus spoonfuls of sour cream on top. It was very easy to make. I’ll definitely make it again.
