“This is a delicious and unusual appetizer. I got this from a lady I once worked with who was a marvelous cook. It is served with corn chips (the Scoops work the best). I also have adapted this to be the filling for a chile relleno I tasted in a restaurant in Lubbock, TX. I am adding that recipe also. This is really easy to make and it is so different because the raisins and almonds give such an unusual taste and texture. Try it, I am sure you will like it. Oh yes, it makes quite a lot.”
