I make this all the time now. It is a regular request in my household. I add a couple jalapenos, use only 1 pound of ground beef, and 3-4 cans of beans (kidney, pinto, great northern) or at least the equivalent. I soak dry beans over night so they are not so mushy. Great recipe, love the mustard addition.
