    Loved it! Only thing I added was Mexican style canned corn. I will make this again.

    The only changes I made were using stock instead of water (as I often do), adding some corn, and transferring to a casserole dish to bake. Really easy to make and super delicious, I highly recommend it.

    I really enjoyed this recipe. I had a little hamburger left over from taco's the night before so this worked out perfect. I did add some green peppers so that it had some more vegetables in it, but you could always make a vegetable dish for the side too.
