Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really liked this recipe. I really liked this recipe. Thought it would be a litle time consuming but it really didn't seem so. And you can do most prep work the night before; I plan to do that on vacation this year. As a standard, we always use only a half pack of taco seasoning in every recipe that calls for it (husband not a big fan of mex flavor) and did so with this one. Still, with onion and cheese there was plenty of flavor. My only regret was using canned fiesta corn in lieu of red pepper. Canned corn was fine in my opinion, but lacked entirely the color and flavor of the pepper. The toddler liked it, non-tex mex fan husband had seconds, my leftovers were good - definitely a 5 star for us. Look forward to tweaking it for breakfast and such.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this last night and it was so yummy. Made this last night and it was so yummy. I substituted a 1/2 bag of southwest hash browns (cubed potatoes w/ bell peppers & onions) - next time I will use a full bag because it could of used a few more potatoes. To make sure the potatoes were done I cooked them separately and then stirred them into the cooked meat. I also used 1 1/2 pks of taco seasoning. I used the Velveeta as stated in the recipe. I served this in bowls topped with crushed tortilla chips, salsa and sour cream. DELICIOUS AND SO EASY TO MAKE!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! Yummy!! My husband had thirds and both my teenage kids liked this. Made a few changes. I used shredded hash brown potatoes and Mexican grated cheese blend since that's what I had on hand. Also added about 1/4 c. salad to avoid it being dry since I didn't have Velvetta. Topped the casserole with the grated cheese and some crushed black bean and garlic dorito chips (great way to use up the last of the chips in the bag). Super tasty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My first time making this recipe. My first time making this recipe. Added a small can of mushrooms to the mix in the beginning. After adding potatoes, it seemed it would be a little on the dry side, so added a 14 oz can of tomato sauce, and a little cajun seasoning for some kick. Baked up perfectly. Served with tortilla chips, Frank's Red Hot, and cold beer was a great big game meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband and my 5 kids all LOVED this. My husband and my 5 kids all LOVED this. I used a green pepper, onion, and canned corn (drained). I also used shredded hash browns and it turned out wonderfully! Next time i will plan on serving a fried egg on top per someone else's idea - hubby thought that sounded good, since it is kind of like a "mess" anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this before w/ ground beef and it was great. I've made this before w/ ground beef and it was great. Tried it w/ venison tonight and it was still great. The kids couldn't tell the difference. I think I'll try it for breakfast next, substituting sausage and omiting the taco seasoning. Then serve it w/ eggs and maybe flour tortillas to wrap. Mmmm...

I read the reviews and, like others suggested, used o'brien potatoes (you know, the diced potatoes with onions and peppers), mexi-corn (whole kernel corn with peppers), and Velveeta Mexican Mild cheese. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!! And even better the next day!!! Definitely will make this again and again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great recipe. Great recipe. I took others advice and used the O'brien potatoes (cubed frozen potatoes w/ peppers and onions). I doubled the recipe, and I also still put in one small onion and one small green pepper. Even my picky eater loved it. Will definitely make again!
