OMG! What a surprise this recipe was! I will admit... I was scared by the idea of stirring Velveeta into my ground beef, and when I did it, it didn't look very pretty. I made this for a big pool party this weekend and I was worried that people would back away slowly, but instead they piled this into soft and hard tacos, and then after they'd eaten the tacos they just started dipping tortilla chips into the bowl. My DH won't eat it, because he doesn't eat any cheese, but it was such a hit with everyone else that we'll be making it again! Thanks for sharing it, Papa! Made & enjoyed for the June 2012 Cookathon in your memory.
