So good. I didn't use lean ground beef, nor did I drain very well, so mine ended up pretty greasy, but that's my fault. I added cilantro, mmm. I wouldn't suggest using very many olives unless you just really love them, they try and take over the flavor a little too much. I will make this again, but w/ lean ground beef and I will drain very well next time.
Very good - we cooked our beef with a pkg of taco seasoning. Next time I will add way more green olives cuz I love them.
