This is great for potlucks. My aunt made this for our family picnics when I was little, and I bugged her for it all the time. One of my favorites. When I was older, I started making it for my kids, and we all just love it. You can add some drained Mexicorn, black beans, pintos, etc., but I like it just as is. Also, spice this to your preference. I don't like this dish really hot, but you can add hot sauce, red pepper, more chili powder, etc. You can use a crockpot instead of an oven, if you like for this.
