I did not have a pound and a half of ground meat, I used one pound of ground turkey. I also used a red bell pepper instead of green. My family liked this okay, we weren't in love with this but we ate it. It might have been better had I used homemade taco seasoning instead of just cumin and garlic powder.

Yum! This is really, really good. Great cheese taste and it's fast and easy. We loved it and will make it again.

I left out the bell pepper and lettuce, substituted ground turkey for the ground beef, and made this as a cheesy tortilla chip dip. My husband raved about it and said it was as good as the sauce served at our favorite Mexican restaurant! In fact, he was eating it out of the pan with a spoon. This one is a keeper! Thanks.
