  1. You can use any ground meat. Feel free to use ground chicken, beef, pork, or even bison!
  2. Canned tomatoes are all good, but the Cento brand has a lot more flavor.
  3. Make it spicy with roasted hatch green chiles and sriracha!
  4. This will keep fresh up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Store in an air-tight container.
