      As written, this recipe tasted like plain hamburger! I had to do a lot of doctoring to give it flavor, such as tripling the chili powder and cumin, doubling the paprika, and adding some cayenne pepper. Even then it was missing something.

      This has a lovely flavor. I used it to fill enchiladas, it is the perfect texture for this, it stays in place when you roll unlike a looser meat. I didn't feel I had to add cheese to keep the enchialdas together. This earns a stop in the repeats file!

      This has become a staple recipe at my house. It is so easy to prepare and the flavor is the best! I like to make up packets of the flour and seasoning ahead of time so I can grab n' go on really busy nights. Thanks for posting such a tasty, time-saver recipe!
