I came up with this recipe by grabbing some ingredients in my pantry and they were amazing. I actually used ground venison instead of beef. The Mexican products I found at our local supermarket. You could also use Chipotle in adobo sauce if you can't find the Red guajillo chile cooking sauce and regular seasoning salt. It was amazing and gone in no time.
