    My family really liked this recipe, though I did as several others did and used this as the foundation of my recipe. I'm feeding three college students-two of which are boys, so I doubled the recipe so my hubby and I could eat, too and have leftovers for tomorrow. I added Taco seasoning, halved the mayo, and left the ro-tel (hot, cuz we like spicy) liquid for 2 tsp onion powder to soak up. Also I've never heard of nacho b anything with only cheese on the top, so I added about a cup of tostito nacho cheese and heated It on the stove--It was REALLY good. But the lettuce was the crowning ingredient -- WOW!! We are looking forward to leftovers tomorrow!

    My son, a very picky eater and not a big casserole fan, actually liked it, TWO heapings! Added some cumin and garlic, served w/ avocado. A winner to me. Also, used 3 cups of chicken instead beef. Yum

    I like this simple idea. I followed the basic recipe then added what my family likes on nachos. I wouldn't have thought to add Mayo but it binded the ingredients together but I probably only added 1/2 cup. Also added taco mix, all my leftover salsa, shredded cheese, a can of diced green chiles and more taco mix sprinkled throughout. Used less bell pepper. Served it on a bed of lettuce with tortilla chips on the side. Yum! My teenagers loved it!

    I made this for Sunday dinner while my husband watched the NASCAR race. I followed the recipe almost to the letter except I didn't have frozen corn so used the can corn. And didn't have enough green pepper, so filled in with red and yellow peppers. And I didn't have the fresh cilantro so used dried. Along with the sour cream and olives we added some Paul Newman salsa on top. Could not get much better than this. My husband loved it.

    I totally turned this into my own recipe,using it as my foundation. Pulled pork already prepared instead of ground beef, added southwestern frozen mix beans and rotel, extra cheese, it was yummy!
