    Great! I added more onion, bell peppers, and 2 extra eggs! Our entire crew loved it! I’ve made this many times before, but have found adding the bell peppers etc makes it even better ! I live on a low carb diet; this is by far one of my favorites!! Thank you , yummly!!

    Big hit! I didn’t add salsa with the hamburger instead used it as a side. I also didn’t add jalapeño but added more onion. So good!

    Really good. I used Rotels instead of salsa. I just dumped a whole can in there. I omitted the hot sauce too. I measured the cheese with my soul. Will definitely make again!

    The Low CarbTaco Casserole was good, as low carb recipes go. I omitted to egg, hot sauce, cream topping. Just did not sound appetizing to me. As a result the casserole was like loose meat. It was nicely spicy, which is what I was looking for. In addition to the onion and jalapeño, I added minced garlic to the recipe, which enhanced the flavor. I also used Muir Glen Medium Salsa, also increasing the heat. I would make this again.

    Was a perfect casserole! I’m in Texas so this satisfied my Tex Mex cravings!
    Super yummy! My whole family loved it! Next time I will either double the recipe or add cauliflower “rice” to make it stretch further. We are every drop and probably could have eaten more (Note: we are two adults, a 7 year old, a 4 year old, and a 1 year old). I would say it’s really closer to 4 servings than 6. Delicious!

    I made it with ground chicken. Very good! Definitely doesn't taste "eggy".

    This was good however I wanted more texture. We served this casserole over a salad. Still craved a crunch factor...I will make this again but need to figure out how to add some crunch!

    This turned out delicious! We put the left overs in a quesadilla for lunch the next day and was just as good the second time around!

    Even the almost 2 year old loved it! Skipped the jalapenos and salsa in the meat but still very flavorful and delicious! Would double the recipe next time so there's more leftovers.

    It seems like eggs would be a weird item to put in this dish, but it turned out fabulous! I doubled the recipe like others recommended, and there was hardly any left. The entire family loved it!!

    I didn’t use cream cheese, hot sauce, or any cream but it was great! Just like the other comments said, it didn’t taste eggy at all 🌈 I also made guac on the side. Despite being low carb, it was all very filling

    It was really good. I didn't think I'd like it because of the eggs in it. We eat a lot of eggs and this just didn't sound good to me. My husband suggested making it and to my surprise it was amazing. It will definitely be added to my line up when I menu plan every week. I cut a fresh bell pepper in half and served the taco casserole in it. so good!
