    Looks good. I promise I’ll make it according to the recipe at least once before I use real minced garlic and my own chili seasonings in place of a packet of pre-made taco seasonings. Really. :-)

    Funny thing. I emailed this recipe to my older sister and she emailed back that she had just made a batch for dinner that night and to take to a potluck today. Seems it’s one of my bro-in-law’s fav dishes. :-)
