    Given how easy this is to prepare, my wife and I were both thoroughly impressed! Thanks for the recipe! Also, for those of you who were wondering, black beans really are fantastic in this! - 6/2/09

    I skipped the taco seasoning and added black beans--the salsa gives it enough of a kick to not need the seasoning (hence the sodium)--it was delicious! The only problem is not eating more than one serving! - 6/2/09

    I made it on the stove instead of in the microwave and I didnt have taco seasoning on hand so i used some other spices i had on hand. I would make this again! - 7/28/09

    I do not have something big enough for the microwave. So I decided I really wanted to try this recipe and just did it over the stove. It turned out wonderful. This is a keeper and my hubby loves it too! - 6/22/09

    My family really enjoyed this dish. It was super easy - great for a quick dinner. I added black beans and only used 1/2 of the taco mix due to the high sodium count. Next time, I will add onions and rotel and leave the taco mix out all together. - 6/28/09

    I only gave it a 3 because like a few other people the pastta just didnt cook correctly. first it was undercooked.. and now its kind of cooked and sticky and weird. not pleasant. However I think if I cook the macoroni seperatley on the stove and then mix at the end it has potential to be awesome - 12/17/09

    This was sooo good!! My whole family loved it, i searched on here for a low sodium homemade taco seasoning and used that instead which was delicious! I also used whole grain mac and cheese and added kidney beans, will definitely make this again! - 7/13/09

    Soooo tasty! It's also extremely filling. I'm a single girl, and this will be perfect for lunches and dinners for a few days. Plus, everything was super cheap. Delicious! - 6/27/09

    This was excellent. The changes I made was that I used heated frozen corn for the canned corn, used low-fat sour cream (Daisy Brand is best I think!), used a can of Ro*Tel Mild tomatoes (pureed) for salsa, and used Annie's Whole Wheat Pasta & Alfredo Macaroni & Cheese. - 6/17/09

    Nutrition info will definitely be swayed by what brands of ingredients you use. When I calculated it out, it came out to 338 calories, but less sodium and fat than this recipe. Overall, it turned out pretty yummy. Eat light before dinner the day you make this. - 6/6/09

    Yummy! Hard to stop eating this one. Hubby has liked all of the Spark recipes so far, but REALLY liked this one. Easy and flavorful. It will be a regular at our house. Didn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing! - 10/6/10

    O... M... G...! This was my first Spark recipe and it totally rocked my world. I didn't have any ground turkey so used ground beef and doubled the ff sour cream because I'm always low on diary/calcium. Will def make again! - 9/8/10

    Great recipe! I did make a couple of substitutions. I used kidney beans in place of corn, and queso dip in place of salsa. This dish was so easy to make and very filling. I will definitely make this again. - 11/23/09

    I made this the night before last. I couldn't believe how filling it was. I was stuffed and even had enough left over for lunch. It was better the next day. Thanks for sharing as I will be making this a lot in the future for a healthy filling dinner. - 11/12/09

    This was FANTASTIC!!!!! I asked my husband to make it and he wasn't too excited about it. He ended up LOVING it!!!!!! As he was devouring it he actually said, "There's no way that this is healthy!" We used reduced-sodium taco seasoning to help a little with salt intake. Can't wait for leftovers! - 7/7/09

    This was very good and easy! i added black beans (drained and rinsed) and put it over some baked tortilla chips. My husband loved it and he doesn't like anything healthy or ground turkey. I would make it again in a heartbeat! - 7/6/09

    This was fabulous! The kids gobbled it up - it felt like cheating, without the guilt. Not the MOST healthful of dinners, but I like a previous rater's idea of adding greens and tomatoes (didn't have any tonight).

    Thanks for the recipe - I just moved it from my "New to Try" to "Favorites"!! - 6/30/09

    Easy to make in a large skillet. I browned 99% lean ground chuck (grind it myself) in olive oil, then added the rest of the ingredients (will need extra water for the macaroni), covered and cooked till the macaroni was done. Next time I will add a can of chili beans and use my own spices. - 6/18/09

    Even with added taco seasoning (I make mine homemade and use no salt) and hot sauce this had no taste except for processed cheese. The macaroni was also so overdone that it just mushed together. Won't make again - 6/17/09
