    Just made this tonight with ground beef and it turned out great! Very happy to have come across this recipe. The whole family enjoyed it. 🙂

  4. I absolutely love mexican-inspired food, and yah, I feel your pain, it’s sometimes SO hard to take a photo of something that doesn’t look that bad in real life, but somehow the moment you take a photo of it it turns into a blob!
