Outstanding Recipe .. Can be tweaked to your taste, Member jessmarie4u

I followed ever step on this recipe and it turned out amazing. I added a bit of a Puerto Rican touch by: 1. Before browning the Ground Beef, season it to taste with either your favorite Seasoned Salt or GOYA Powdered Seasoning with Pepper. 2. Add Chopped Cilantro (about 1/2 cup) along with the Chopped Onions and Chopped Green Pepper, and 1 tablespoon Fresh Minced Garlic. 3. Add 1/2 can ROTEL Chopped Tomatos & Green Chili & 3 Bay Leaves .. (Add entire can for a spicier touch) Turns out absolutely delicious! You'll see ... Jess
