Sounds weird. Putting it together was weird. Once cooking, smelled delicious. Came out beautiful. E high fives me. I kinda saw another recipe like this named taco spaghetti. Italian- Mexican fusion. Thinking you could make this vegetarian with black beans instead of meat. My husband was still weirded out by the combo, but he still cleaned his plate. Plus, more in the freezer for another night in the near future!
