I only had 1 pound of ground beef, so I used a can of kidney beans and a can of corn to help make up some of the bulk of the meat. It is a great consistency and I think it would be a little too thick if we'd used a full 2 pounds of beef. I used 16 oz of tomato sauce rather than 8 oz, and only 2 cups of water and it's still a little bland. Next time, I'd use 24 oz of tomato sauce and only 1 cup of water. I also added a small onion and 4 cloves of garlic to the beef mixture. Otherwise, followed the recipe as written and the spices are just right for my kids and a little less spicy than I'd like. My only real issue with this recipe is the lack of flavor to the sauce. The spice is there, but the flavor seems diluted by all of that water.
