For my taste this was pretty bland. Next time I'll use at least twice as much seasoning and maybe even some chilli, as it wasn't spicy at all.

Very tasty, quick to prepare and easy to cook. I swopped the beef for turkey otherwise followed recipe. The spices I think we're mild so I will add some chilli next time.

Made these tonight as per the recipe and another batch with a packet mix my friend already had. This recipe was far superior. Won't use a packet spice mix ever again!!

Used chicken, left out cayenne as we have a 4 year old and served with salsa so wasn't dry and gave it a little kick. Was delicious!!

Really enjoyed this! Left out the cayenne to suit young pallets and it went down a storm.

I cooked these with my daughter tonight and they were delicious. Quick and easy. Lots of clean plates with requests to cook it again.

This recipe is good for minced beef, but if you're girlfriend (!) prefers chicken then just add a can of chopped tomatoes to the mix as it can be a bit dry. I like the way I don't need many fresh ingredients for this recipe and you can thrown in whatever veg you have lying around :) We also used mild a tsp of chili powder instead of cayenne pepper. Pretty cheap too....
