My hubs raved about it the whole night! Score!

  11. Made this tonight for the first time tonight. Super yum! Good job!

  12. I made this tonight and it was really good.  Used my own taco seasoning and salsa recipes instead of Rotel and peppers, and more cheese.  I only had large corn tortillas and they worked just fine.  Service with our fav toppings and a salad.  Will make again.  Will be a great tailgate food too.  Thanks!
