    HillBillyFilly's Note:

    I found this recipe in a cook book by Sandra Lee from the Food Network. I made a dish of this and it was almost instantly inhaled by my DH and DS. Very yummy! At times I have topped this with a dollop of sour cream and fresh cilantro.

      Excellent! My DH loved this recipe. I did tweek it a little though. I added some chopped onion, a little cumin and some garlic powder to the meat while browning. I also threw in a small handful of cheese after adding in the rotel and salsa. This goes into my favorites cookbook!
