    This was delicious! I also added taco seasoning to the ground beef for an extra zing and also a can of black beans. Also, be careful with the thickness of your potato slices. I had to bake it a bit longer, as I cut mine too thick. Next time I will slice them thinner! Other than that, it was great! - 8/28/08

  • This was ok but I won't make it again. Layers are sparse; used a smaller size pan. It REALLY needs something-- tomatoes w/chilis maybe. Or instead of cheese on top, some sort of cheese sauce mixed in. I used taco seasoning-- the meat & veg part tasted good but potatoes were VERY bland. - 11/2/14

  • This was excellent. I did add an extra half pound of meat
    and a pkg. of taco seasoning the 2nd time I made it. My husband topped it w/some Pace Picante Salsa and declared it a winner. - 5/21/09

  • I'm always looking for recipes to feed 2-3. My husband works out of town alot and I can only eat so many leftovers. With no kids at home anymore, leftovers kind of hang around if there is too much left. - 1/3/09
