What an interesting mix of Italian and Mexican flavors. I'm glad to hear that others have had good success with this dish. I'm not fully convinced that canned pasta (at least the ones I'm familiar with) are a good mix with the taco seasonings I use. I think I would use the refrigerated ravioli plus either making my own sauce or seeing how some of the jar sauces I like blend with the taco seasonings. I also think I'd make it spicier with adding some jalapenos or at least some Mexican blend cheese to the top.

Oh my god. Italian food + Mexican food = my heaven

If you use frozen ravioli, how much do you use?

Doglady52 I read your reciepe and Ithank it sounds good and easy to make to me Imight add some chopped up mushrooms , onion and the olives

My hub LOVES this! I like it too! Sometimes I'll add a can of drained corn or a can of drained black or kidney beans. Sometimes I'll put both. All depends on what my hub is in the mood for.

I feed three(3) adults. We tried it last evening for dinner. All of us rated it as Great!!. I will keep this recipe for futher meals. There was enough for us and some left over.

@crazy mama - Thanks for sharing your version of this recipe. Sounds delicious! -The editors of RecipeLion

I made this, and, instead of a green salad alongside, for our "leafy greens", I had some leftover steamed spinach which I dropped by forkfuls on top of the ravioli before adding the beef mixture and cheese.

@Crafter 3170031 - Glad you liked the recipe. @jameskmargiek 6239201 - Thanks for sharing such a great dish with all of us! -The editors of RecipeLion

Made this last night my family loved it

This is my oringle recipe,I was wanting something different to take to a church potluck and came up with this recipe,and I brought home a empty casserole dish and people wanting the recipe.So glad that all of you liked this

I have used frozen ravioli with about 16oz of tomato sauce and 10oz of salsa instead of the canned ravioli.

I tried the recipe as written, and it was great! I'll certainly make this again!

@pattih1956: I certainly think you could substitute frozen ravioli in this recipe. Make sure to cook the ravioli according to package directions before including it in the casserole. You will also want to add a proportionate amount of sauce to the casserole as a substitute for the sauce in the canned ravioli. Let us know how it turns out! -- RecipeLion Editor

I wonder if you could use frozen ravioli instead of the canned in this recipe? Although you won't get the sauce that comes in the canned ravioli, this might be a good alternative.

@cidergeorge - So glad you enjoyed it! -The editors of RecipeLion

The sour cream worked very well with this. A glass of Sangria also was a good companion to this meal.

Hi cidergeorge, Sour cream sounds like it would be a nice compliment to the meal. Let us know how it turned out! -Editors of RecipeLion

Will be trying this tonight. Would sour cream be good with this meal?
