There's green pepper and onions in the salsa already. He says in the video that it cuts down on the prep time!

This sounds really quick and tasty , but did anyone who has ground vension ever try it in these dishes--it is delicious. I use it often, my husband is a deer hunter.

Add some grated pepper jack cheese...has jalapinos in it.

I add what jamayer does and also add bacon. I have used salsa in my chili and other dishes that I want to have a little kick for years....just made sense to me and beats chili powder. I stopped buying and using it a long time ago. you can never depend on the heat you are going to get from it.

I think you need to add green pepper and onion and brown with hamburger. Also, melted cheese on top would be good.
