    I made these another big hit in the house...a few notes my childern like taco's so next time I will put some taco seasoning in with the meat and I will double the salsa because it tastes more like beef and mac&cheese, we like a little more taco taste, but it did not stop them all gone including leftovers in 2 days.

  • Great taste and easy to make!

    For my house hold this was a great tasting twist. But called to make way too many elbow noodles and we have 6 kids to feed

  • My kids loved this!

    This recipe has a creamy texture, and is not too spicy. I used mild salsa. Older kids woofed them down and asked for seconds. Even my 4 year old ate a whole one, and felt good about finishing it! Takes a little longer to prepare, but the effort is worth it. Could be a nice change from pizza for birthday parties.
