Could you tell me how to do this with fresh meat. I'm out of beef dices and can't get anymore until I go to Phoenix in January. I don't know the amount I'd use or if I would have to cook it first before adding all the other ingredients. Any advice would be great as this looks delicious.

It would be the equivalent of 2 lbs of beef. We'd suggest browning the beef before cooking it with the other ingredients.
