    This is pretty easy, but unfortunately, like most recipes here on Taste of Home, it is bland. I added a couple of those little taco sauce packets from Taco Bell, after taste testing, and it was much better! You could also probably use rotel tomatoes instead of regular diced tomatoes. And, I also though that next time, I might just use some spaghetti sauce in place of the water.

    I didn't care for this at all; very little flavor and strange combination.
