This beef is delicious all rolled up in a tortilla, served with corn salsa and eaten as a burrito. You could also serve it over rice or mashed potatoes or in buns. —Darcy Williams, Omaha, Nebraska

"Absolutely delicious. There was plenty left over to use for quesadillas the next night. I added some diced green chilies to the dish. Great meal for a crowd."

"Very tasty dish. I used one can 14 oz can of diced tomatoes & one can of Rotel, & we ate it on tacos. Since it made so much, we had plenty left to freeze. Looking forward to pulling those out one busy weeknight!"

"Mmmm! So tasty! The slight changes I made were to use garlic powder and smoked paprika because that's what I had. Turned out really good over rice. The next day I had it on a flour tortilla with lettuce - so good! That's how I'll serve it next time."
