    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

    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 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

    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 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).

    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

    I like the black bean idea much better than the corn. I think it will be a hit with all my gringos! Thanks for the recipe! - 2/12/10

    This is a healthier twist on something I've been making for years. Ours tasted really, really good, but I also did not cook in the microwave since I don't like how the pasta comes out that way. If the instructions called for cooking the noodles stovetop, it would have gotten 5 stars. - 1/4/10

    used veggie crumbles instead of turkey, ff yogurt instead of sour cream, added black beans, diced tomatoes, sliced black olives, and topped it with low fat cheddar. passed the hubby test, but next time we're adding baked chips. very goopy on its own, even after doubling cooking time. no curb appeal! - 6/19/09
