In our version here, we used ground breakfast sausage, but you could feel free to use 1 lb. of any other ground meat instead.
For a little more of a kick, when you add the diced tomatoes you can also try adding in some of these ingredients:
- 1 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
- 1 small can of chopped Mushrooms
- Other veggies you might enjoy!
Also, if you would like to make this as a dinner for four, just double the amounts of the ingredients.
