“From my God Bless Texas e-cookbook, with my variations. It originally called for sour cream but I use yogurt instead. It also called for 1 cup of cooked chicken or turkey pieces, but being a vegetarian I prefer beans. Pinto beans would be best here. Use any kind of salsa you like, I like Frontera brand salsa verde and would use an entire jar here.”
