Rated 5 out of 5 by from I volunteered to cook supper tonight for my mom and I. I volunteered to cook supper tonight for my mom and I. I wanted something fast and easy, without having to buy many ingredients. I was a little hesitant about this recipe at first. I was going to substitute the salsa for pasta or pizza sauce, but decided to go with the salsa. I'm kind of a picky eater, and not a big fan of salsa. But I have to say, I really liked this recipe. So did my mom. I did make one small change to the recipe. I substituted rice for the pasta. I think this would be a great dish to take to a potluck. I will definitely make this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made my own version of this recipe w/left over ingredients from tacos... I made my own version of this recipe w/left over ingredients from tacos... seasoned taco beef, queso dip and salsa! Followed recipe - next time I would add less water maybe only 1/2 - 1 cup. Other than that its a great throw together recipe from left overs. However, I do not think it would have been as good w/o seasoned beef so if you follow the recipe as is - season the beef :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was delicious! This recipe was delicious! It's a main dish with the "comfort food" of mac and cheese and a Tex-Mex twist. I cut the recipe in half, since it's just my husband and me, though I wouldn't have minded having leftovers! My husband loved it, even though it fell under the "healthy food" category. And...there's only one skillet to wash!
