My whole family loves this! If all the young grandkids are going to be visiting, I don't make it as spicy. I really surprised everyone with my secret ingredient of spaghetti sauce!! I prefer it to tomato sauce or salsa because of the great texture and flavor. I love the chunky vegetable sauce. If it is only adults, I add about 1 cup of medium salsa.
