Oh my!

I made it for dinner last night.

Browned 1lb ground beef and 1lb sausage. Drained it. Added about 4 oz cream cheese and stirred until melty.

Then I put half in a different skillet (tomatoes are the bain of my existence). In my skillet, I added about half of the rotel "juice". In the original skillet, I dumped the rest of the can in.

It was fabulous! My honey agreed, and we both ate every bit of what we had. We did add a bit of shredded "mexican" cheese and it was wonderful.

Looks like this stuff is going to have tons of ways to vary it up.

Mybelle29 - Glad it came out just as good, I think I will leave out the sausage next time, too.

this sounds like it would be good served with some lc wraps that are fried up as chips, or as someone mentioned hamburger helper type thingy with dreamfields pasta?

I ate mine with a spoon.

Some people put it over cabbage, broccoli, or other veggies. I think it would be good over a chicken breast or even some chunks of beef (like a stew cut of beef).

I broke down and went over my grocery budget to buy the ingredients, and I made this tonight. Very good! What's cool about it is that it's like a blank canvas; I can see all the geniuses here coming up with many different delicious variations on it. I'm thinking of trying it with Italian sausage, adding some garlic/onion/basil/oregano to the meat when I brown it, then putting mozzarella and parmesan on top and getting the cheese nice and bubbly under the broiler next time.

I made some a few nights ago and used all hamburger meat. It was really delicious. I was dubious at first but since everyone said it was so good I went for it. I'm glad I did!

DH said he'd try it...

and that usually means that once will be enough but this morning he asked if we could have it again tonight! Now that's an endorsement folks! I personally didn't care if he didn't like it because I'll have it for the rest of the week! Great idea for a simple, flavorable and low carb basic that will translate into many more dishes!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to whomever came up with the idea!

Oh my goodness I made this today for the first time. I bought a pound of HOT ground sausage, and the HOT Rotel can with habaneros. It was amazing, and I had to add a little sour cream to my bowl to cool it down. DH loved it, too!!

Just some thoughts..I need to try this..However, I wonder if it would make a great soup???
We could add some beef broth to thin it out and maybe a can of tomato sauce. I think I'll try it as a soup tomorrow. I might make 1/2 of the recipe as there are only 2 of us..
Let you know.

Carolyn-Linda Sue has a recipe that is basically this turned into a soup. I made it the other day but added chicken and her recipe doesn't have sausage but I also used sausage.

I plan to try this "beef ragout", or whatever everyone wants to call it this week. As far as cream cheese goes - I made a dessert w/it last night and the scale was down 3 lbs this morning!!!

I hate to post this!

First let me say that I LOVE (really LOVE, LOVE Linda Sue's recipes)!!!! Every single thing I have made from her web site! She has the gift! Until I made the spinach mexicali and both my husband and I thought it was terrible!!

I was so disappointed because Linda gave it 5 stars.

So here is the deal---this recipe sounds just like that one minus the spinach. I have been trying to figure out what I didn't like about Linda Sue's recipe and I don't think it was the spinach, but the cream cheese with the meat and rotel.

Has any one made both and can help me figure this out?

I have made both, and I love them both, so I don't know how much help I can be. Do you like Rotel? I think it is the combination of Rotel and cream cheese that gives this dish its distinctive taste. It doesn't seem to matter what meats and veggies you add. Everyone is different. Don't worry about it.

I think this is something my husband (who doesn't LC) would really like. If he does, it will be a win/win situation!

Made this again using all hamburger. Threw some (canned) green beans and mushrooms in it.

I've also added some of it into a salad.

Good stuff .. and quick which is my favorite kind of recipe!

I just had to try this after reading all of the reviews. I fried cabbage with the hamburger and then stuffed green peppers with the mixture. I was full from eating the mixture, so never even tried the stuffed green pepper (that will be for dinner), but the mixture was awesome! I will be making this alot! Thanks to whoever thought of this!!!
