    Tried this tonight, it was a bit dry ( could have been my slow cooker) flavour was great. All of the family would like veg mixed through the mince so I will put some in next time

    Had this tonight – easy dish to make and quite tasty, but next time I would add more taco seasoning for a little more of a hit.

  3. Made this with a few different ingredients and it was delicious. Not a fan of beans in our house so changed it to a jar of salsa, also had green cap in fridge so added that to slowcooker. It was really good and will do it again. Yum.

  4. Yum! I made it with pork mince instead and it was a hit. Will likely add a tin of corn and some chopped capsicum next time, it was a nice one pot meal.

  5. 4 stars
    This is a great easy dish that all the family loves. I added capsicum and onion for a bit more flavour.
    I find it best served with some salsa and sour cream.
