“I got this out of a cookbook called Cocina de la Familia. This is one of my families favorite recipes. I have also served it to company and it was a big hit. I serve this with fresh tortillas to mop up the delicious sauce. I also serve it with two other recipes out of the same book which I will post when I am done with this one. (Pepper Slaw & Seasoned White Rice) I hope you enjoy as much as we do!!”
