So, so good! That's all I have to say about this. I really wished I'd had a can of diced green chilies to throw in here because that would have taken this dish over the top. Also, if you'd like a meatless meal, just substitute a couple of cans of black beans to replace the ground beef. But...made as is, highly recommended! And so easy! I sent some of this home with my daughter the day I made it and she said her husband ate almost the whole thing by himself! This made quite a bit...I'd say at least 8 servings so I hope you're hungry!!!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south.
