I made this recipe 2 different ways; one basically following the directions (except I did not use the microwave method; I browned the meat on the stove then layered everything and put it in the microwave with damp paper towels covering for 2 minutes on high to melt the cheese; then continued with the salsa, lettuce tomato and sour cream); the 2nd version I made exactly like the first, except I omitted all veggies - my middle son only likes the meat and cheese. Everyone in the family really liked this and I would surely make it again. It was as simple as making tacos from a store-bought kit; and it was easier (and neater) eating at the table!

Only change I made was I browned the hamburger in a skillet on my PIC and added the seasonings then put everything together and nuked it per the recipe. Wow - fast and easy and at 104 degrees my house did not get heated up. And yes you can cook in the microwave - I do it all of the time. Especially with mashed potatoes. U take 4 - 5 potatoes diced, medium size bowl filled with water to cover; stretch tight on top with 4 - 6 holes and microwave for 16 minutes. Super easy and fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay, I did change a few things. Okay, I did change a few things. I had some enchilada sauce on hand, so after browning the meat, I added about 1/2 c. to the meat mixture. I didn't use the pre made taco seasoning, I just don't like the additives & extra sodium. I used some chili powder, cumin, and oregano & fresh garlic (that I sauteed wi the meat after a few minutes.) Then I put 1/2 the meat mixture in the baking dish, sprinkled with a mexican blend of cheese, topped with a whole flower tortilla, spread rest of meat on top of that with more cheese, then topped with another whole flour tortilla, spread some more enchilada sauce on that, not too much, but enough to cover, then topped wi more cheese, and some sliced black olives. After baking, I sprinkled the shredded lettuce and green onions over the top and a few dollops of sour cream. It was more like an enchilada than taco, but very, very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved that this was made in the microwave. I loved that this was made in the microwave. Tho mine isnt a newer one and it doesnt rotate, it still turned out great! The only thing I may do next time is add some diced tomato as a garnish at the end when the sour cream and lettuce is added. Also allowed for the sour cream to be added per guest. All in all GREAT!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this recipe 3 times in less than a month--Owww--so scrumptous. I've made this recipe 3 times in less than a month--Owww--so scrumptous. I too made it on the stovetop. My hubby didn't think it would take the place of his taco salad--boy, did he get fooled. Now when I'm out of ideas for a quick supper and I ask him, he will suggest the "Taco Pie"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe and very simple! Great recipe and very simple! I some corn to the second meat layer for a little extra veggies. Refried beans sound good too, but my kids would turn up their noses. I will probably leave out the salsa next time and add it at the table because my daughter doesn't like salsa.
