You can add jalapeños, hot sauce or green chilies to this to add a real kick! **edited on October 24 to add instructions for Once a Month Cooking. I usually make these during a cooking blitz and freeze until I need them**

Wow! These were awesome! I used one package of Yves brand vegetarian ground round and 1 tbsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. chili powder and 1 tsp. chopped garlic instead of seasoning. I used marble cheese and the sauce was soooo good!!! A keeper for sure and very filling!
