    Wonderful recipe. I used chili powder instead of cayenne pepper and it worked great. This will be a regular for me! - 3/23/11

    Am I crazy or does the picture show beef strips? Because the recipe calls for ground beef! Is this picture really of this recipe? And what is HCG? - 6/18/13

    I made this tonight and loved it! I cooked my premeasured HCG p2 separate by following the recipe and then made the same thing using a lb. of lean ground beef for my family. I added a dash of Worcestershire and ketchup. I mixed some Southwestern Seasoning mix with ranch to drizzle on top of theirs. - 1/25/12
