I was given this recipe by a Texan friend. It's simple, quick, and family pleasing! My father-in-law is always dropping broad hints about how much he likes it and how I should make it more often! It makes a lot and you can also freeze it (just don't add the rice). You can make it mellow as listed below or add some heat by using a can of Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes (actually, that's what the original recipe calls for) and/or adding some jalapeno. I recommend serving with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
