    I have a turkey in my freezer and am thinking of getting a convection countertop oven unit or a three-in-one. It sounds much easier than I'd imagined. I do like the suggestions included in the processes included.

    Taste was excellent but the bisque I didn’t care for. I think it would have been better in a whole wheat wrap sprayed with cook and spray and browned in a skillet.

    l love the Southwest Eggroll's served at Chili's restaurant and my first time trying them I have always wanted to see if I can make them as awesome. I plan to try the recipe real soon. Thanks

    Very good, very filling. used fresh green habaneros instead of canned chilies.

    Loved it. I was concerned that the biscuit layer wasnt doughy enough as it seemed more pancake batter like but it turned out great. Next time I will double the amount of Taco seasoning for more flavor and add some jalapeños for a little spice. Overall a comforting dish that we will make again.

    Not bad! I will add green beans 😋 this time, and probably substitute some things... I don't have green pepper on hand; but I will use yellow bell pepper because it's sweeter. Also, last time I made this, I chose to add crunched up Ritz crackers as a topper! Delicious.

    Amazing! Everyone loved it. Made our own biscuit dough for the bottom, that was the only change. Highly recommend. Very easy to follow.

    i liked it. but my husband and my son where not fans. they humoured me. i won't make this again. also, this isn't a quick meal either. not hard, just don't make this in a pinch.

    I sort of wish that this hadn’t turned out as well as it did because it was a mess to make. My favorite thing about casseroles is being able to just throw it all together and done, but this used just about every bowl and pot and pan that I have.

    Pretty good. I used ground steak instead of hamburger meat and a can of Rotel with green chilies instead of the diced tomatoes and canned green chilies. I will definitely try this again.

    Excellant! I used canned biscuits pressed to the bottom of pan and pressed biscuits on side side of pan creating a “crust”. Biscuits are much easier and taste better.

    i used a little too mich water on the dough so it stayed moist but ofherwise a delicious recipe

    I liked this recipe, however I did make some changes. it is just myself and my daughter, so 2 pounds of ground beef is much too much. I cut the recipe in half which worked out well except I don't think I put in enough of the taco seasoning. I would definitely make this again!

    I left out the green chili’s. Used crescent dough sheets instead of biscuit mix. I also added extra cheese. I turned out delicious. This was my second time making it!

    Turned out very well. I used Crescent's Dough Sheet instead of Bisquick snd it turned out great Little too many tomatoes for my preference but everyone in the house liked it.
