This was delicious! I cooked as instructed making my on guacamole, making Mexican Black Beans #179877 and Spanish Rice #20780 to go along....definately a keeper and one to make again. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2012.
Great thank you. I actually added the onions first (I wanted them a little cooked rather than just warm), then after about 3 minutes added the meat, garlic and cumin, when the meat was done, I added the peppers. My salsa was really hot, so I omitted the chilli powder-it had just the right amount of heat for us. I made my own guacamole and loved the rest of the toppings you suggested.
