This recipe rocks, but that goodness I read all the reviews and got creative a bit. The best thing about this recipe is that you really don't have to measure anything, and that is the way I like...

I used ground beef once and it was terrific. I also used the liquid from the beans and the corn in place of the water called for. Added extra flavor!

This was so easy and great too! My husband loved it and even my 19 month old cleaned her plate. I didn't follow the recipe to the letter though, I used 1 lb of chicken, a whole envelope of seaso...
