This is a "go to" recipe for me. I make it when I am having company and everyone just loves it. It is easy and tasty. I add more salsa and because every one I know loves cheese an extra 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. I serve it with salsa and sour cream and it makes quite a yummy meal.

Good and easy! I threw in a can of refried beans to stretch the meat a little more, and used salsa instead of tomato sauce. Served it with cornbread and salsa to feed six adult men who are pretty big eaters.
