    I made this with a few changes/additons and my husband and I both LOVED it. (1) I used 1 whole pound of ground beef (90% lean); (2) I used black beans instead of pinto; (3) I used the entire package of taco seasoning (mild); and (4) I added 1 can of seasoned diced tomatoes. DELICIOUS!!! - 1/8/13

    I liked this but found it to be a little bland. I served it with a shredded lettuce and tomato salad and topped it with a little salsa. - 11/6/07

    This was very easy to make and satisfied my craving for Mexican food. I was out of rice so I broke up whole wheat spaghetti into little pieces and it was still good. DH suggested wrapping it tortillas next time which I think would be good too. - 4/18/07

    I added salsa to give it some moisture and we don't do beans. Everyone liked it really well. - 9/12/12
