I give this recipe 2 stars as it is written, but 3 stars after I fixed it up to suit our taste. As written, the meat mixture is bland, and I don't that it wasn't spicy, I mean it had next to no flavor at all. After I tried it I added additional chili powder, then onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and hot sauce to give it both flavor and spice. Now it was pretty good. I should have followed the lead of other reviewers and just added taco seasoning to begin with.
