Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe was a good one to use for Halloween because of the way it was presented ... This recipe was a good one to use for Halloween because of the way it was presented ... all these eyeballs looking up at you! But I wouldn't do it again and try to transport it in a car. I crunched up sheets of foil inside of a large jellyroll pan to keep the tacos upright so the 'eyeballs' didn't roll out. One shortcut I made in this recipe was using pre-cooked frozen meatballs and spicing them up a little with some Mexican hot sauce splashed on them in a bowl and gently stirred - then allowed to thaw. I heated mine in a crockpot on low for 2 to 3 hours. Also added some leafy lettuce to the taco shells which helped present the tacos better. The party-goers loved them and appreciated the creativity. Thanks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I read about the problems people were having so I cheated a bit. I read about the problems people were having so I cheated a bit. I put a thin layer of beef in the bottom of the taco and then the topping and then the meatballs. That way, if the meatballs fell out there was still meat in the shell. The second time I made it, I was pressed for time and my grocery store has these delicious ready made meatballs so all I had to make was the loose ground meat. It was great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this recipe was gross. this recipe was gross. i would NEVER make this recipe again and i suggest u never make it. my halloween party was ruined because i only had the tacos planned for dinner and since it was gross the children wouldnt eat it. i had to order pizza for the children which was a lot less healthy than the "tacos" i had planned. take my advice. you'll thank me for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids had so much fun making these silly tacos. My kids had so much fun making these silly tacos. I made extra "eyeballs" so they would break up the meat in the bottom. They all did it by themselves and we took pictures and they were very proud of what they did. Some don't like tomatoes but ate them when it was used as the mouth. Fantastic idea and very fun - Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fun and simple way to get the kids interested in actually eating their food. This is a fun and simple way to get the kids interested in actually eating their food. This is also a quick fix, exciting meal for Halloween and having to eat in a hurry/on the run. You can stuff your taco with whatever veggies they like and top it off with the simple designs.( eyes, mouth, teeth, salsa for blood)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made these yummy eyeball tacos for the last 4 years. I have made these yummy eyeball tacos for the last 4 years. Every year I have a Halloween dinner and the adults are more excited than the kids to see what side dishes I come up with next. I have used many of Krafts Halloween ideas for my dinner parties and get new ideas from them every year. Thanks Kraft Kitchens!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is hysterical (we "died" laughing ha ha). This recipe is hysterical (we "died" laughing ha ha). My family gathered around the table to each put together our own tacos assembly line style, and we had a blast. We have varied the assembly ingredients with various mexican cuisine options, but they eyeballs are the key. Hilarious.
