“This is a wonderful chile recipe. Different from any I have had before - no tomatoes or onions go into this recipe. I got this recipe while living in NJ from a Southern Living Magazine. I've lived in Texas for over 25 years now and this recipe really is the best. The chile powder and cumin can be adjusted up for additional heat.”
