      I have just made this recipe for tomorrow evening, as I will have a long day at work and won't have much time to cook. I couldn't resist tasting it and it's absolutely WONDERFUL. I hope the kids and my DH will like it too (which I'm almost sure of), because I really would like to make this again and again!

      I added a can of corn and some taco seasoning that we had laying around. Also used chicken broth instead of beef since I didn't have beef. This is a REALLY good recipe!
