    I added rotel, green chiles, corn, and black beans. I also had a packet of taco seasoning on hand and added that to the beef after draining the fat. My entire family ate it and I will be making this again.

    It was okay. I used half a can of black beans and used Rotel instead of salsa . It came out a little dry but added salsa before I ate it . I was just okay

    Made for my family - they all loved it! Went back for second in fact (this says a lot because they are all quite fussy). I did reduce the chilli powder to 1 tsp but it still had a kick! 10/10 would recommend if you have ground beef that you don’t know what to do with

    I made a milder version (left out the chilli powder and cumin) but my family LOVED it! My 20 month old devoured hers! So easy and makes plenty! We will definitely have this again 👍🏻

    Love this recipe and have made it multiple times now. Instead of salsa I use one 10 oz. can of Serrano RoTel. Left overs reheat nicely as well.

    I used ground chicken to be healthier.. I also used cilantro lime rice (Zatarains brand) and Trader Joe’s salsa. It was super yummy and very easy to make.

    Quick and easy dish that was tasty. I wish I would have pulled it out of the oven a little sooner. The cheese got a little crusty instead of being gooey. I made it all in a cast iron skillet which improved kitchen clean up. Used a different type of salsa instead of using the salsa recipe that was suggested.

    Absolutely delicious easy to make I made up Old Elpaso Mexican rice made a bed of it in the bottom of the casserole dish put all of the other ingredients on top and topped it off with a mixture of shredded cheddar cheese and shredded mozzarella cheese and the green onions. Was a big hit with my family and I

    Turned out pretty good if you like Mexican food. I dont care too much for Mexican food. I just had some leftover cooked beef and wanted to make something else. So I just made it for my husband☺️ He liked it a lot.

    Delicious! I added a few more seasonings but very tasty!

    It was delicious. I will certainly make it again. The only thing I did differently was used macaroni which I precooked instead of rice because someone is allergic to rice . Still was delicious.

    Good! Added Tabasco for more flavor. Next time, I’d also add black beans. Top with taco toppings and serve with tortilla chips.

    Yum! I love Mexican casseroles and I added a can of corn niblets. This was a full 9 by 13 inch casserole for my hubby and I, so I made TV dinners out of leftovers in round Chinese foil containers for future quick meals great recipe
