Personal Notes:
I cooked this recipe tonight and we loved it. Mike suggested that we add beans and rice to the bottom of it as well. We keep almost all of these ingredients on hand already so this is very quick to do. It helps if you cook up your ground beef earlier in the week and season it however you like.
