"Absolute favorite recipe... so easy and delish and it keeps really well! Love love LOVE"
"Humdrum. Nothing memorable about this recipe."
"To me nothing needed to be tweaked, my little family loves this recipe."
"Since I love veggies, I threw in another 1/2 c. of onions. I added about 1 tablespoon of taco seasoning mix and another 2 T. water to give it a little more kick. I also substituted lean ground turkey for the beef and it was still just as delicious!"
"I added a 1/2 t of salt along with 1/4 t of cumin and fresh celantro as a garnish"
