Easy recipe. Instead of cumin add two packets of taco seasoning and stir in sour cream after it's done.

We enjoyed this dish. Was easy to make which is a real plus for people like me who dislike cooking. I used one can of fire roasted tomatoes and one of diced tomatoes and green chiles. No tomatoe sauce. I pre cooked the frozen veggies in the micro.

Very easy to make; I love that it only uses one dish! I didn't follow the recipe to the letter because I didn't have bow tie pasta or cumin on hand. I used elbow noodles & store bought taco seasoning, and stewed tomatoes instead of diced. It tasted pretty good, though next time I'll experiment with a different type of pasta.

Overall, it is a great recipe. I would definitely recommend this recipe to my friends and family. One of many great meals especially with family involved.

This is a very easy recipe and it tasted good, but it was missing something. The next time I make it I would add more tomatoes and some salsa to give it some spice!
