MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 28, 2014

I thought this was very good. I changed it a little because we dontcare for spicey food. I used taco seasoning instead of chilli powder. DeleatedtheCheyenne pepper and added a can of fiesta corn.i served tortilla chips with it and it made an easy weeknight supper

I make this with ground venison, use kraft spiral mac and cheese, and change the diced tomatoes to Ro*tel, original. Spices it up real nice. And I like spicey.

It was ok. A little to salty for our tastes.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 29, 2011

It was too spicey for our taste. Maybe just half of the salsa and no chili powder would be a good starting place.

The sodium content of this is about 1/2 of a whole day's recommended allowance. Use low or no-sodium diced tomatoes out the 1/2 tsp salt, low fat cheese & sour cream will go a long way to making this a healthier meal.
