I added some garlic, onion, italian seasoning, and chicken boullion (I used ground turkey in place of beef). It would have been bland without otherwise.

Surprisingly bland. It needs an onion (or two) and some peppers.

Awesome recipe! I used white instant rice (because that is what I had in the cupboard) and added one beef boullion cube to water and garnished with sharp cheese. YUM! My 3 yr. old thought it was too spicy, so next time I will make it with italian seasoned tomatoes.
