    Delicious! Whole family loved, even my picky eater liked it. Used whole packet of taco seasoning and threw in a couple of jalepenos. Will make again

    I pretty much pitched this to the kids as "hamburger helper but homemade and better" and they absolutely loved it. Super easy to make and makes a lot for cheap. It's also very delicious!

    This was an easy delish recipe! The family found it ESSENTIAL to have a crunchy chip topping. With the crunchy chip topping it's a FIVE STAR meal!

    Came out quite tasty, more zest to it than a store bought Hamburger Helper. Simple to make as well.

    Family loved it! Added more cheese and i followed someone's review that they used sour cream as a topping. Taste even better with the sour cream.

    Didn't see the part about needing shell pasta, ended up using spirals. Turned out great!

    It didn’t taste nothing like tacos. I couldn’t taste any of the seasoning. All it tasted like was goulash. I mean it took me back to my childhood but I have eaten so much of it in the past. I just don’t like the taste of goulash any more. But this is a easy and quick recipe to make and for others it will probably work better for. But not for me.

    This was good. Easy. Salsa flavor was a little overwhelming so next time will use less or may try a different salsa

    It was just okay. That said, it was easy to make and should please most families with kids. I would like it spicier and perhaps more involved. I will make it again so I can experiment with it.

    Easy and tasty pasta recipe. I added diced cooked onions to the ground beef mixture and used Taco sauce because I couldn’t find salsa at the grocery I went to. Before serving, I sprinkled fresh parsley to add a little green color and was it was delicious. Maybe next time i’ll sprinkle the pasta with fresh coriander instead of parsley.
