Good as Is, Great with Tweaks, Member georgiajohn

I made this initially according to the recipe, using ground turkey. It was good -- a solid ""4""/ I have made it since in larger quantities and tweaked the ingredients. In making a double batch I use a pound of turkey, a half pound of ground beef and a half pound of chorizo. Instead of using regular diced tomatos for the double batch, I use one can of regular, two cans of fire roasted diced, and one can of diced with jalapeno. I only use 1.5 tsp of cumin. It's great. And it is acceptable to the palate of my almost 3 yo grandson.
