Delicious, I did make it with shredded beef I cooked in a crock pot instead of ground beef, also added green chiles to the beef mixture.

Dh liked these, at first I didn't much care for them but they grew on me as the meal went on. They were a bit dry so next time I would add more salsa. Thanks for a new twist on a meal we have often.
