“While attending some sort of soiree, and being moderately unimpressed with the food trucked in from more than a few (mostly chain) resturants, a local taco stand had a lonely table in back and was serving up slices of this delicious meal. After a few attempts, it was decoded, and the delicious discovery is now mine whenever I am so inclined to make it. As easy to prep as a casserole, and when made in tangent with a double batch of the Mexi-Mild Chili Sauce (, you have a complete meal and about a two cups of leftover sauce for the icebox.”
