This is a favorite at my house. Hispanic people call it "Picadillo". Usually eaten with flour tortillas, I have added the cheese sauce and sour cream. Hope you enjoy!

  3. Add tomato sauce, water and garlic powder to meat mixture.
  4. Simmer for 10-15 mins to thicken to desired consistency for serving.
