““Ready, Set, Cook! Contest Entry” This is the easiest recipe you have ever made. Just throw it together and put it in the oven. No watching, basting, or mess. The Reynolds Wrap Foil prevents all the mess. This meat is even better when frozen, and taken out for a week day meal. The fresh corn tortillas and Rodriguez Dipping Sauce are so good and just as easy.”
