Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a good recipe. This was a good recipe. It was fast and easy. My picky 2 yr old ate it up!! I did add in some extra ingredients like the prior recipes... I sauteed the meat with garlic, salt, pepper, green onions, and extra chili powder. After I layered the tomatoes, I put extra cheese layered on top of that. With the cream of wheat, I added salt and pepper to it. This is excellent served with sour cream! It would be bland if you don't add the extras...it's very yummy if you do add the extras!!:)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I thought this recipe was terrible. I thought this recipe was terrible. I tried adding the things that others recommended...extra cheese, garlic, chili powder. I would add some taco seasoning mix to the meat and maybe some salsa in the topping might make it better, but it was very,very bland.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It needs a little spicing up. It needs a little spicing up. I would salt and pepper the beef while cooking, and add more chili powder, a bit of cumin and some onion. I would also salt the Cream of Wheat topping so that it is not so bland.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made a similar version of this recipe. I have made a similar version of this recipe. Instead of cream of wheat, I used a corn bread mix. The recipe with cream of wheat is something new I would like to try since it's low in fat and nutritious.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IT DIDN'T SOUND VERY APPEALING TO ME. IT DIDN'T SOUND VERY APPEALING TO ME. I WOULD PREFER PINTO OR REFRIED BEANS TO BLACK BEANS & THE CREAM OF WHEAT DIDN'T SOUND APPROPRIATE IN THIS TYPE OF RECIPE.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very bland, didn't like the texture. Very bland, didn't like the texture. I assume they were going for the polenta like taste. The cream of wheat just didn't do it.
