    Easy to make but I added salsa to the rice and mild chili’s, some beans and corn to the meat I think it needed more flavor but still good. Next time I’ll increase the taco seasoning and add cumin. A keeper.

    Used tomatoes with chilies (mild) and was still a bit bland with not much flavor.

    Turned out great! Everyone loved it and it was something different rather than your typical taco salad or burrito.

    Easy to make and tasty. depending on your taste you may want to add some hot sauce

    When you get down to it, this is just hamburger and rice with cheese on top. It looked bland and boring in the baking dish, so I added enchilada sauce, red kidney beans, and olives, and used fiesta blend cheese instead of just cheddar. It was alright, but still didn't have much flavor. But it wasn't terrible.

    I didn't realize I ran out of rice, but I did have a box or zatarans black bean rice, and a can of diced tomatoes, about a half cup left over of sauce, and a 1 1/2 lbs of Hamburg, and 1 package of taco seasoning, mixed all together and topped with cheese, baked and had sour cream on the side of mine! It was delicious!!
