This was very good. I used 2 lbs of ground beef, because that is what I had on hand. I did use 8 garlic cloves and added 3 finely chopped jalapenos and cut the ceyenne pepper to 2 tsps. I added a little garlic salt to taste and a little sugar, to take the acidity from the garden tomatoes that I used.. I also added 1 1/2 cups of beef broth, because it seemed very thick, maybe because I used fresh tomatoes. I will make this again and it was great the next day!
