MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 13, 2014

"Came out great! I used beef stew meat, (had it in the freezer) instead of the ground meat, added 1 cup of beef bouillon, and some minced garlic. Also, I used 1 can diced fire roasted tomatoes and 1 can plain diced tomatoes since I had those on hand instead of the stewed tomatoes.I had actually cut the recipe in half. Other than these additions I followed the recipe."
