“Original description: "Such an easy recipe, but so tasty! Moist inside and crispy on top! A complete meal in one pan." (From, published By: MRS.G) My notes: I was looking for a way to use leftover taco beef I had, and this came out perfectly. Publishing as I found it, but I cooked the beef first, and used leftover peas and some broccoli I had on hand. Cooked for 40 minutes, and it came out perfectly. I topped it with shredded cheddar just before serving. My girls (3 yrs and 8 yrs loved it) AND (surprisingly) so did I!”
