    I liked it as is but my other half wanted it with corn tortillas.

    This recipe was easy, filling, and delicious. I served it with a Mexican style rice mix and a green salad. I will make this again.

    This was pretty good. I think it might be better if the beef mixture and the beans were combined. I found the beef on top was a bit dry and a bit much.

    This looks good but it is clearly a BURRITO.
