Both hubby and I cleaned our plates tonight. I followed the recipe and the changes I made was to use one can of chopped green chilies instead of two and to use two cups of cooked brown rice. . What a delicious flavor. We will be having this delicious dish again. I highly recommend this recipe. Volunteer Field Editor

I have made this tasty meal since I found the recipe in the Taste of Home Ground Beef cookbook years ago. We use the leftovers (it's just us 2) in a tortilla and adds extra cheese. It's fast, easy and and good.

Looking for easy weekday recipe, and this certainly is one. Only change I would make is forget the Tortilla chips and serve it with soft taco.

We never have leftovers!! Everyone loves this dish. It has even won 1st place for our sons Boy Scout troop dutch oven cooking competition. Took it home for over 22 family members during hunting season and had them all asking for the recipe. We have eaten it with wraps too.
