After loosely trying various recipes, this is the combination that worked for my family. It is spicy enough for dh abut not so blazing that the kids won't eat it. THE PICKY ONE had 5 tacos!! Dh's comment, "you've made this a few times before but this one I LIKE." You can use vegetable broth to keep it vegetarian or use chicken or beef. You can use a can of diced tomatoes (regular or Rotel) instead of taco sauce or salsa but it will take a bit longer to cook because of the added liquid. This made enough for our family of 4 to have 3-4 tacos each with just a little bit left over.
