Easy Versatile Tex-Mex Meal

Candace Breaux


My family loves this because it's so easy to make that any of us can throw it together and it's so versatile everyone can make it their own. Wrap it up into a burrito! Serve over chips! Use as a taco salad filling! My son uses it in the sandwich maker to make his own 'hot pockets'. Freezes well.
