Perfect, Once you add your own twist. the Queso sauce is wonderful with it and a little bit on Jalapeno Peppers :)

I haven't made it but see subs I will do. No lie Cal stuff and I would add a pig of taco seasoning to meat while cooking it. Also Sautee green and bell peppers in margarine and then add to mixture. Will let everyone know how it turns out.

I made this recipe because it looked so delicious on the web; however, it was very disappointing, I wasted a pound of premium ground beef because it did not live up to being an appetizing dish....wound up throwing half of it out.

Thinking the recipe might be a little bland, in lieu of the seasonings, I used a package of low-sodium taco seasoning. Also, rather than mayo, I used a cup of queso dip (I had the plain cheese, but if you like spicier, you could always use the kind with jalapenos in it). These two changes really did the trick for me.

Lame. Add some heat to this, some salt, and maybe 2 cans of Rotel to add some spice. Maybe add some cheese into the mix rather than just on top.
