Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was delicious! This recipe was delicious! My husband LOVED it! I added a package of taco seasoning and used whole wheat penne pasta instead of the wagon wheels. I think adding the taco seasoning made the recipe! I served it with a salad using low cal spicy ranch dressing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It turned out great! It turned out great! I used ground venison and used elbow pasta and did as some of the previous posters did and used taco seasoning. I did add some garlic salt since I didn't have any garlic and it was just salty enough.

I used extra lean ground turkey & substituted garlic powder for minced garlic (1/4 tsp). I couldn't find wagon wheel pasta so I used small shells (fun shape for the kiddos) & I also increased to a whole cup of corn and it was perfect! I will definitely make it again but will try some of the other user suggestions & try it with taco seasoning instead. Delicious & a nice easy meal. I think it would even work well as a crockpot meal

Right off the bat this recipe didn't really look all that "taco-y" to me, so I made some immediate substitutions/omissions: I omitted the garlic and chili powder and replaced with a packet of taco seasoning. I increased the corn to 3/4 cup and reduced the cheese to 1/2 cup. This makes a big meal. It was delicious with these modifications and I will definitely make again. My two young boys loved it.

I also used a whole cup of corn. We liked it but it was a bit bland - needed salt. Decided that next time I would use taco seasoning instead of chili powder. Could also use hominy or corn. It made a lot. I would make it again with seasoning tweaks.

This recipe was delicious and I made it as it says (using green pepper instead of yellow because that's what I had). My 14 month old even enjoyed it. My husband suggested that it would be better with Italian Sausage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We thought this was very good. We thought this was very good. I couldn't find wagon wheel pasta so substituted farfalle instead. This reminded me of a kicked up goolash. This made enough for us to have two meals from it and it reheated well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This recipe looked and sounded so good! This recipe looked and sounded so good! I made it and no one (including me and a 15 yr old boy who will eat anything) would eat it. I even tried adding my regular chili seasonings to make it taste better.
