  • Reviews

  • “Tried this earlier in the week and left out the beef (I don’t eat red meat at all). Just added black beans in its place and it turned out really well! I really appreciated the tasty (and easy!) Bisquick crust! Thanks for a nice weeknight recipe!”

  • “Very good. Since I’m on a low fat diet I used all reduced or no fat ingredients and it was still very good.”

  • “This was great! I substituted the reduced calorie Bisquick mix and it seems to work as well.”

  • “The recipe was very easy to make and seemed pretty true to the measurements with the exception of the tomatoes which would have been way to much if used in the amount given, though I believe this is because tomatoes keep getting bigger – mine were bigger than softballs.Neither my husband or I cared for the flavor of the recipe, though.I didn’t like the nearly uncooked flavor of the tomatoes and he didn’t care for the sour cream/mayonaise mixture.Oh well, every recipe is not for everyone.”
