    Everyone loved it, great flavors!! I added extra veggies in just to get more veggies in my family.

    This was a hit with the whole family! I made a few small additions that I think were a great addition for my family... when the ground beef was almost done cooking I added 1/2 a diced zucchini and 1/2 a diced yellow squash. Next time I would like to add onion as well. Everyone (including the 18 month old) had seconds! We will definitely be making again.

    Good! We liked it. I didn't add the green chilis to the corn bread. I will add this one to the rotation.

    I thought it was bland, I couldn’t taste the seasonings at all. If you make this, maybe double the spices. I only used 1/2 of a 14oz can of cream of corn... she doesn’t put how big of a can to use, just a can of it. I don’t think I’ll be making this one again

    Great! I was a bit skeptical but it was very good. I may add some veggies to the meat when I cook it again.

    It was alright. The cornbread crust was pretty soggy and loose, making for a mushy casserole. I used creamed corn as the instructions suggested, so it might be better with a can of drained whole corn.
