Almost everything in this recipe is optional and/or changeable. If you want it spicer, user more tobasco, or a hotter taco seasoning. If you want it milder, use half a pack of taco seasoning and no tobasco. Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles are mild, and have almost no spice to them. The spanish food aisle also has medium and hot versions if you want to kick it up a bit. [I posted this recipe.]
