    So good ! Easy to make !

    Very tasty! Its essentially a homemade taco seasoning. We used ground turkey instead of beef, substituted the chipotle seasoning with Cajun seasoning, and dipped them in a homemade guacamole dip. Quick and easy, great for lunch.

    Family hit for all the flavors! I had to tweak recipe a bit from what I had on hand. But it was delicious nonetheless!! I didn’t have any chipotle chili powder so I used Cajun seasoning. Also didn’t have tomato paste so used 4 tbs of tomato sauce. I used only mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. I love recipes that allow these kind of adaptations! Certainly does need an accent dipping because it is rather salty. So I chose sour cream and salsa was good too.

    I have made this numerous times and it’s been delicious each time, even the leftovers are winning. I add some sour cream to dip at the end and me and my lil guy get our grub on!! Never dry, always moist and dripping in cheese....🤤

    These turned out great. I added onion to mine, which made it not as dry.

    Absolutely delicious! My husband and I loved it and will definitely make it again soon. I added diced Jalapeños into the meat and used ground turkey instead of beef.

    Amazing dish. I tweaked it tho. I added chopped red capsicum, grated carrot, grated zucchini, tin of black beans and corn. For the herbs 1tsp of chilli is more than enough, borderline medium heat. All other spices say 1/2tsp. I upped it to 1tsp.

    This recipe was good but tasted incomplete. A better mix of seasonings and spices make this dish awsome.
