    Excellent!! Another keeper. I used no salt added mixed beans, a full 650ml jar of salsa, increased the corn to 2 cups (that was a accident but it word out well)and 2 cloves of garlic. Will be making again.

    This recipe rocks! It's SO yummy, and I love the fact that it's an easy make ahead meal, just dump all your ingredients in! The only really 'prep' work was chopping onions and cooking beef! We increased the salsa, as I didn't have tomato sauce on hand. And the kid wanted to try adding mushrooms (he made this recipe!) We added fresh, and they turned out great. The leftovers also freeze great individually for easy 'take-to-work' lunches. BONUS!! :)
