I really don't know what to call this...except tasty!! It was suggested that it looks like enchilada filling but it scoops up nicely with tortilla chips. I dumped a pile on some leftover brown rice pasta.....so it would be at home on a pile of rice, too. Regardless, it was easy and good so I thought I should post it! Inspiration was taken from several ideas I found online while procrastinating..... I'm sure you could use whatever ground meat you have. Feel free to spice it up more; add some kick! I'd like to add some minced jalapeno with the garlic next time!!
