Made this for Fall Pick-A-Chef 2011 today for our dinner...took a little bite of it and it already tastes good and smells delicious. I cut the recipe in half and I did add some garlic and minced jalapenos along with the onions and sauteed them just a few minutes at the end of the time of cooking the ground beef. Otherwise I followed the instructions and we are now totally enjoying our dinner. Topped with the cheese and served with Mexican Rice#442747, a small green salad, sour cream, chips and salsas. Thank you for posting.
