Absolutely loved this recipe but I did have to add a few more spices to take away from the tomato taste!

1 teaspoon chilli power? Needs a tablespoon. Bland ultra tomato-y. I like the beef bites though.

this is good, but it is pretty tomato-y. I tripled the amount of chili powder as another rewiever suggested, which helped, but it was still very overwhelmingly tomato-y.

I use ground beef instead of the steak plus I add mccormick's grill mates smokehouse maple seasoning at the end. Its soooooo gooood!!!!

We were out of kidney beans so i used black beans instead and it was a pleasant surprise kudos great recipe !!

too much tomato

Very good, did need to double the chili powder and I used pinto beans. Great meal.
