They serve this at a little cantina near where I live. Doesn't look so good, but the taste is fabulous.

Very tasty! I reduced the amount of meat to 1 1/2 lbs and only added one can of beans since one member of my family is phobic about the results of eating them! The only Rotel tomatoes I can get around here are the very mild ones so I added a bit of Chipolte chili powder along with the 2 tsps. of cumin. I though the shredded Monterey Jack added a lot of flavor too. I served it with some really good white corn tortilla chips. Thanks!
