    I found this recipe on Pinterest about 2 years ago and have been making it ever since. It's one of my boyfriend's favorites! I change it up sometimes with what I have on hand. I also make my own taco seasoning. The recipe is great as-is.  -  24 Jul 2016


    My family and i thought that this was ok,but never enjoyed it enough to want to make it again,in saying that its not a 'bad' dish though,just not for us!  -  18 Sep 2013


    This has become a real fave in our house. It's easy, and it's quite cheap too. There are just my husband and I in our household, so this recipe makes enough for us to have a good serving size each, and there's enough to freeze for another night. I make it in two foil containers, one for dinner, and one to freeze.  -  21 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
