This is a great vegetarian dish with a spicy kick from taco seasoning mix. If you are not vegetarian you can add a little browned beef mince.
I must admit I was a bit skeptical about this recipe, but it was excellent. Don't be scared off by the strange combination of ingredients -- this is a hearty vegetarian meal with great flavor and texture! I modified this recipe by only using one half of one onion (just seemed like too much otherwise). In addition, I used about half of a can of diced tomatoes, since I wanted the sauce to be thicker. I used a little cheese, and, since my family doesn't like peppers, I omitted them, and used diced avocado as a garnish for color and flavor. Definitely will make again! - 11 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This recipe is fabulous! I ommitted the olives, used extra salsa (fresh "Mi Abuelo brand from the refrigerated section of Sam's Club--excellent!), and farfalle (bowtie) pasta. I then topped it with melted colby/jack and sour cream, mixed it all together and reheated it to make a warm, creamy sauce. Top it off with crumbled blue corn chips and you'll be in comfort-food heaven!!! It was so good that I made it again as soon it was gone!!! Tip: I didn't like the McCormick taco seasoning as well as other brands. The Taco Bell brand was amazing!!! - 22 Dec 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
SO Tasty!! I added about 3 tbsp. of cream cheese to the sauce to make it nice and rich. - 16 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
