    Was a perfect casserole! I’m in Texas so this satisfied my Tex Mex cravings!

    Super yummy! My whole family loved it! Next time I will either double the recipe or add cauliflower “rice” to make it stretch further. We are every drop and probably could have eaten more (Note: we are two adults, a 7 year old, a 4 year old, and a 1 year old). I would say it’s really closer to 4 servings than 6. Delicious!

    I made it with ground chicken. Very good! Definitely doesn't taste "eggy".

    This was good however I wanted more texture. We served this casserole over a salad. Still craved a crunch factor...I will make this again but need to figure out how to add some crunch!

    Really easy to make. Not many ingredients and takes about 40 minutes. Very tasty.

    Awesome! I didn’t change a thing in the recipe. It’s one of our FAVORITES now - so very delicious!

    This turned out delicious! We put the left overs in a quesadilla for lunch the next day and was just as good the second time around!

    Even the almost 2 year old loved it! Skipped the jalapenos and salsa in the meat but still very flavorful and delicious! Would double the recipe next time so there's more leftovers.

    It seems like eggs would be a weird item to put in this dish, but it turned out fabulous! I doubled the recipe like others recommended, and there was hardly any left. The entire family loved it!!

    I didn’t use cream cheese, hot sauce, or any cream but it was great! Just like the other comments said, it didn’t taste eggy at all 🌈 I also made guac on the side. Despite being low carb, it was all very filling

    This is one of my family favs and go to recipes. Love it

    It was really good. I didn't think I'd like it because of the eggs in it. We eat a lot of eggs and this just didn't sound good to me. My husband suggested making it and to my surprise it was amazing. It will definitely be added to my line up when I menu plan every week. I cut a fresh bell pepper in half and served the taco casserole in it. so good!

    absolutely loved it. hubby gave it a "10". I ate it with some sour cream/hubby with stewed tomatoes.

    very tasty. I will definitely make it again.

    Husband was hesitant but he actually asked for more! Will keep it on rotation :)

    This is easy and delicious! My picky son even loved it. It can be easily adjusted to suit your taste. I was a bit worried about the egg under the cheese but it was totally fine. Didn't taste the egg at all. I'll be making this again and again.

    Oh my gosh 🥰👌🏻one of my favorite dishes. So glad I found it. I omitted the hot sauce to keep the heat down. I also added a bag of Fritos chili cheese chips on top before I baked it. Delicious!

    Super delicious! No one had a clue that it was a low carb recipe.

    Easy, quick and simple. Really good. Will make again.

    I made this today, and loved it. I put extra cream cheese and onions in with the taco meat, and my own taco meat mix. I left out the hot sauce. It came out really good!

    Recipe came out just as planned, yet the flavor was a bit bland...seemed to lack a base to this dish, like rice or potatoes. I was able to doctor up some leftovers with some added salsa and rice as a base and that was actually pretty good!
