    This sounds great, I live in New Mexico and we love Mexican food I was trying to figure out what to fix for dinner. I was thinking about fixing Carne Adovada with Rice for dinner so I typed in Carne and pressed enter and came across your recipe. I am going to save this it looks great...Thank you I will have to make this....I love to use Masa Harina. We can buy it already mixed or dry and mix your own........Thanks again
