    It was good I added corn and instead of using all the seasoning I just put a pkg of taco seasoning with it. It was really easy and quick. Will do again

    Was ok, kind of tasted like a enchilada, not my favorite, little chance of marking again.

    I have made this countless times! I’ve landed on a couple permanent tweaks to make this how my family likes it: add a diced green pepper, a small tin of green chilies, and a cup of frozen corn. I think it would be great with black beans too!

    Excellent! I substituted pork for chicken. The dish was a hit with the whole family (even the pickiest of eaters).
