I've been making this recipe for years because my family really likes it. It's great for busy days because you make it earlier in the day and let it cook.

MY REVIEW

Great recipe, easy to make, I added a 4 oz. can of green chilies, a piece of jalapeno diced, taco seasoning, ancho seasoning, annato seasoning, garlic and onion powder, kosher salt, paprika and cayenne pepper instead of chili seasoning and season salt. Loved it !! Making it again tonight with pinto beans. Awesome with a white Mexican crumble cheese!!

Instead of season salt I used red pepper flakes, that spiced it up real nice

This was very simple to put together which makes it great when you don't have a lot of time but to me I felt like it was missing something in flavor. Maybe it needed to be spicy since my family loves spicy dishes or maybe more cheesy. This is something I would try again but next time I'll be adding something to the dish.

Lacked flavor compared to the recipe I've been holding on for years that I got off a corn meal box. I would, although make my usual recipe in the crock pot next time.
