"I use 1/2 lb. lean ground beef, 1/2 lb. hot Italian sausage. 1 med. yellow onion, diced and 1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced. Cook these together. With the salt, I also add pepper and just a shake of red pepper flakes. Everyone really likes this recipe and many have asked for the recipe. Give it a try and enjoy."

"I make something similar. I add 1/4 c. (or more) of medium jarred salsa and it does the trick."

"Not great. Needs more seasonings."

"I agree it's missing something, needs some kick, added red pepper, but not enough. Could be tasty if someone figured out what it needs."

"There is definitely something missing in here. But, the idea was so good, I made it a couple times trying new things, and I just had the eureka moment I was waiting for. Sausage! I use sausage in place of the ground beef, add some extra beans, and voila! Yummy goodness!"
