Very good, made this almost true to recipe, but used fire roasted diced tomatoes. Definately a keeper.

Good filling sandwich that really stretches the ground beef.

I was wondering what I'd cook for supper last night and came across your recipe...needless to say, it was a hit!! No leftovers and no complaints! I will definitely make it again.
