    Martha, would this be good in a flour tortilla wrap? Also, have you ever frozen it? I was thinking that maybe this might be good frozen, then thawed and zapped in microwave for lunches. :D

    Yes it can be good with the flour tortilla wrap, the only thing is that it comes out juicy, but if you only use the tomatoes instead of using the can of tomatoe sauce, it would work perfect. I have never tried to freeze it since when I make it its gone in no time, but sounds like a great idea! :)

    P.s You can also eat this with corn tortillas!

    Bill would like corn tortillas for sure. I thought about this after I asked the question and thought it would be gone in no time! lOL! Mexican food is a weakness of mine. Is this a mexican recipe or filipino? Some dishes overlap cultures it seems. I like both, spicy is my middle name! LOL!

    This is a Mexican dish, its those kinds of dishes that your grandma cooks then mom.. now I cook it and my daughter... I guess its a hand me down dish lol As far as I know its a Mexican dish, everyone gives it its own flavor, we say in spanish our own "sason" :) Hope you like it! :)
