I wanted to like this, but it was somewhat bland. I was concerned about not making the corn bread portion with the package directions, but that turned out fine (I used a box of Jiffy). The creamy meat mixture needed something though. Not sure what. Chopped onion maybe? I chose to use parsley over cilantro, so maybe that made it less Tex-Mexy. It wasn't a difficult recipe but not sure I'd make it again.
This was good but could be better. The recipe did not specify to drain the meat so I didn't but once I added the milk, it had far too much liquid. Even after cooking longer, it was too much to adequately evaporate. I would suggest draining the cooked meat. Also, if you really like tex-mex and spicy food, you will find this needs a lot of seasoning. Being a Texan, I get plenty of spicy food and enjoyed the mellow southwest flavor in this dish. I also left out the cilantro as it's something our kids don't like. The kids really liked the dish even though the texture was a bit mushy for my taste but draining the meat would solve that.
