"this is a very simple yet tasty quick meal to make. I changed a few things, instead of stewed tomatoes I used diced tomatoes with lime juice and cilantro and instead of regular tomato sauce, I used Rotel brand tomato sauce for a little more spice. I would make this again. I also changed the ground beef to ground turkey."
