"This is a very good dish! I add 1# of hamburger, browned and drained, can of diced tomatoes, 1/2 tsp. chili powder. After it is cooked I spread it in a 9 x 13 pan, sprinkle the top with chopped cilantro, chopped green onions and shredded cheese. bake uncovered long enough to melt the cheese. It is a wonderful potluck dish! We love it!!"
