“I love this recipe. It is easy to put together and cooks while you are away. This recipe is a combination of several recipes I have used over the years. Serve this with either flour or corn tortillas for a wonderful meal. The heat depends on the heat of the chiles. I use long green mild chiles from Hatch, NM.”
