Please clarify.

I'm sorry to say this, but I'd punt on this particular recipe and look for something better written.

The standard practice in writing recipes is to list the ingredients in the order they are used, something this author didn't do. But there's more...

You've pointed out two errors. The ingredients can be deduced from the recipe directions. One is red onions and the other is red tomatoes. Take a guess at which quantity matches which ingredient but adjust to your own personal taste.

However, this recipe is also missing the quantity of ground beef. I stopped there, three sentences into the directions. I don't know if the rest of the recipe is full of errors.

Whether you decide to execute this heavily flawed recipe or go elsewhere for a similar dish is your call.

Best of luck.
