My husband, family and friends love this dish. I sometime make a spanish rice to go along with it. You can make it mild like I do and then the people that like it hot can add there own sauce to it. I dish this up then everyone adds there own toppings.

    Sorry forgot the green chilies that goes in with the meat mixture. You can also add some cheese in with the meat mixture and heat well. I use the soft yellow corn shells. I make ours mild since I'm a wimp but my husband loves his hot so he adds cilantro and hot sauce on his. We love these and they make a nice easy meal.
