No question. This one was a hit. The boys all loved it. All 3 of them, lol. I liked it. It's nothing special, but it's easy enough and has a nice flavor to it. I really like the Worcestershire cooked with the meat. That adds an extra little flavor dimension to it. I used ground turkey with no problems. Definitely a keeper for us.

I probably should not rate this, as I used a couple of different ingredients than listed. I used kidney beans. I also used a can of rotel tomatoes instead of the tomato paste as I didn't have any on hand. This was really good. My son couldn't get enough of it. He and I like anything with rotel in it. Will make this often.

I've been making this for years. Sometimes I throw in a can of mixed vegetables or corn that has been drained. It seems men and kids really like this dish. Thanks for posting.
