Note: To make some Vegetarian, leave the meat out and put the spices in with the onions. Each person can add the meat or not as they wish.

Note: To make the salsa easier to make, you can buy already mixed Fresh Salsa and use a 5 oz. container of that in place of the tomato, red onion and jalapeno.
