Yuuuummmmyyy! I made the original recipe once, coring and peeling the tomatoes--not cut out for that. Have made it again and again with canned diced tomatoes. Used it as the meat for taco salad on a Bunko night--the ladies raved about it.

This was terrible! There is no sauce or flavor whatsoever. I thought it sounded good from reading the recipe but after I started putting he ingredients together I could tell it wasn't going to be very good. Hamburger, potatoes, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cumin, pretty bland without a sauce to go with it. I ended up adding some taco sauce to save it, it made it edible but not by much. I won't be making this again...
