I fell in love with it when someone else made it. So, I played with it a little and added some extra things myself. My students always wants me to bring the dip, when we have parties r just allow them to have refreshments. Also, I helps with the basketball program as well and the team likes for me fix it for them as well. Not to mention my daughters job they loves it too. You can use from 1lb to 2lbs ground beef as you want depends on how many you are preparing for. It's very good with corn chips or tortilla chips. Enjoy!
