I love this recipe because it is so versatile! If you like it hot and spicy, add jalepeno peppers. This can also be used as a dip! My family loves it and there is never anything left when taking it to a party!

This recipe can be adjusted very easily to individual tastes and the ingrediants can be doubled or tripled for a great crowd pleaser!

Serve with flour tortillas to make great burritos, or as a dip, serve with corn chips.

* This recipe can be made ahead in crockpot. Cook low for 4 hours or longer to enhance flavor, with exceptions of beef, onion and garlic which needs to be cooked ahead and then added to crockpot.
