Oh Mille®™.. I really enjoyed this. I didn't freeze it..I couldn't wait. It smelled so good. My intentions were good. I prepared it in the morning all the while planning to freeze it, but I couldn't wait so I baked it for dinner. It was delicious. I added more of the herbs to the meat mixture and used more cheese in the potatoes. I not only topped the potatoes with the cheese, I put some cheese IN the potatoes. Wow.. so creamy and good. I loved the taste of the cilantro in the potatoes. That topping is certainly a keeper. The next time I make this I'm going to make it in individual casseroles so I can pop them out as needed and bake them. Thanks again!
We all liked this but weren't wowed by it. I would make it again as it freezes well and will get eaten.
"This recipe is FANTASTIC!" The few changes I had/needed to make to the recipe didn't change taste or quality of the recipe and left me with enough to provide enough for dinner and a casserole to freeze. I had to use an extra 1/2 lb chop meat. Instead of pickled jalapeno for the potatoes, I had to use a fresh jalapeno, minced. I did have to add a diced green pepper and a diced large tomatoe to the base mixture. (garden overload) I did need to make another batch of your fantastic potatoes to cover the casserole that I froze. Not a problem. The potatoe mixture is so delicious, it can stand alone as a great side dish and I intend to make them in the future. It's "company quality" when served with a side salad. Thank you for a treasure that will be added to my favorites.
The hunters were out to the farm so I made this "meat and potato" dish for them and they all had seconds. I diced the mushrooms up since some don't like them but will eat what they don't see. I also left out the jalapeno peppers since we have smaller ones in the house but all in all this is a great one meal dish. All we added to the side was some garlic bread. I already have another one made and in the freezer!
Hi Miller! I made this recipe to leave in the frig for Dd who is the middle of exams at University. This is a great recipe if you would like something with a different twist or a "little" kick. I will also use the potato recipe by itself in the future. I followed the recipe as written without freezing. I will be making this again!
Not one tiny bit of this was left. Even my son's girlfriend ate two helpings. I think the potatoes alone would make an excellent mashed potato recipe as well. Excellent.
made this tonite for dinner and everyone enjoyed it...will make this again..
