Very good but way too soupy! I would cut the tomato juice down to 2 cups next time. I also seasoned the beef and onions with cumin chili powder and cayenne pepper while it cooked. We used it on top of tortilla chips and as a burrito filling. I used the other half of the onion as a garnish on top with the cheese and a little sour cream. Read More

The recipe had good taste except the tortilla chips got too soggy. Is there a way to thicken the sauce? I boiled mine for 15 minutes. I also used Red Hot Sauce but not enough. Read More

Not hot enough. And we wish that we had not poured the mixture over the chips but rather used it as a dip. It is good though. Read More
