Okay, i have to admit at 1st i was skeptical...but then i made it yesterday and my hubby kept telling me how good this was (huge smile on my face) - best one i have ever made he said! I like to read other reviews to see what needs tweaking before i try a recipe. I did almost exactly as stated by Deb. I just added chopped garlic to the onion and ground beef mix and i used a whole 16 oz jar of chunky salsa (Pace Medium) and then a can of mexican diced tomatoes vs. tomato sauce. After cooking beef/onion and garlic i drained and put in crock pot over the beans and tomatoes. then layered remaining ingredients w/1 tsp each of cumin and cayenne pepper. Cooked on low for couple of hrs; turned it off and added 1 chopped green pepper and 1/2 red pepper. stirred and let sit for 30 min. I like my peppers al dente/crunchy. Came out PERFECT!!! i actually wish i had doubled the recipe! Served over Ditalina pasta and my hubby likes to eat his over salad and/or with Fritos on top. I think the package of chili seasoning mix, salsa and can of mexican tomatoes it what made it so much better than any other i have tried. I am tossing out all other recipes and replacing with just this one. Like Mac and Cheese recipes, I like to keep trying a bunch until i find one that i can perfect and call a keeper. This is a DEFINITE keeper! Would rate on scale of 1-10 - a 15! Must make it!
