    It was quick and easy but not our favorite. We probably wouldn’t make again unfortunately.

    It was good but the directions didn't state to drain the meat after cooking and I think I should have because it came out quite greasy. Will update next time.

    Will add more seasoning next time, but all in all, success. We topped ours with fritos for a little crunch.

    The family very much approved. Both admitted they were not expecting much from this one but were pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Definitely a keeper. I did add more vegetables (a can of tomatoes, an onion, and a bell pepper) and I'd be tempted to add black beans and corn to it as well. This recipe definitely needs vegetables in it. Also, I used ground turkey instead of beef and used chickpea rotini instead of wheat flour for added protein.

    it turned out great! The only different thing I did was use my own homemade taco seasoning... I'm getting ready to cook it a second time!
