    Gone in minutes! Family loved this. I didn't put tortillas on bottom in fear of becoming soggy.Added jalapenos on just 1/2 the side over salsa for my son who loves heat. Served with bowls of shredded lettuce, chopped tomatos, sour cream, guacamole, and the SCOOP tortilla chips! No silverware even needed for this quick and easy dish. You can also spoon some on a flour tortilla and roll it up like a burrito. Thanks for the great recipe!  -  23 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    While the meat cooked, I made a package of yellow rice and used that as a layer for a little more "substance". Being 8 months pregnant and craving something mexican, this hit the spot!  -  05 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Tasty and simple to make. I put chopped fresh tomatoes and sour cream on top and served with torilla chips. Also served a salad and had a complete meal. The next day, we cut small pieces, approx. 1" x 3", heated them in the microwave, then placed them on large tortilla wraps, sprinkled a little cheddar cheese, tomatoes and sour cream, rolled them up and had instant burritos. They were even better this way!  -  06 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
