Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I did not care for this, but my family thought it was good. I found it to be too dry and lacking in flavor.

I followed the recipe as printed and this was so dry even my husband, who hardly ever says negative remarks on my new recipes, said don't make this again.

TEXASIZE THIS, instead of chili use a dry taaco, same difference!!! As U cook meat add yr Fav ROTEL, ifin u find pepper jack cheese add spice!!!!!!

Simple and awesome!
