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.
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.
