This was good, but I made some changes when I made it. We do not like hot spicey food. I eliminated the chili powder, the hot sauce, the cayenne pepper. I substituted olive oil for butter. I used the turkey. We don't eat beef. It is chicken, turkey and fish and plenty of veggies. Thanks.

I'm not a big fan of ground turkey, but I sometimes find it for super cheap on clearance. I always make this when I have turkey.

I use very lean ground beef because my husband doesn't like ground turkey.
