Review This Recipe
We loved it!! I'm making it for the holidays - it was so different and yummy. Even my nearly 2 year old ate it.
I just maded this recipe for dinner and it was a huge hit with everyone! I would recommend this recipe to anyone. It was very easy and quick to make. I also added the sour cream and salsa afterwards and it makes a huge difference. This recipe is going into my recipe book and will make this again.
Raves from the Family
Easy to make, very tasty, and the coffee makes quite a flavor difference. The whole family absolutely loves them. (Even the one that says that Taco Bell makes the best Mexican food ever) I left out the olives since my family doesn't like them. I added a cup of sour cream and some chili powder to the tomato covering. It enhances both the flavor and the texture. When dividing the tomato portions I use one of the cans I just opened. The kids appreciate anything I do to cut down on dirty dishes.
