"Crazy easy to make and the kids actually liked it. The only thing I changed was I sauteed the onion and 2 cloves of butter in a little butter and olive oil before adding the ground beef."

"Next time I'll add 1/2 to 1 cup of my favorite salsa and use just one can of tomatoes. I might also substitute 1 can of peas instead of corn."
