This was a great base recipe. A friend of mine made something very similar with ground italian sausage instead of ground beef. The spiciness was great. I also add in some salsa and more chillies...
I changed an awful lot--late and I didn't have everything. It's a long way to the store. So, after that - it was great, and fast! I used refried beans in place of both cans of beans having neit...
This is a great recipe. It's really versatile. You can use tons of add ins, even in the cornbread mix. I definitely recommend adding in the cheese!
I often forget that it calls for pinto beans so we get it with extra black beans (I love that part, family hates it). Really good either way. SUPER EASY recipe!
