My mom used to make this for our large family back in the 1970s, and we loved it! It is easy, fun to make and yummy to eat! You can make it mild by adding mild green chiles or spice it up a bit by substituting pickled jalapenos.
This recipe is close to my heart, bringing back memories of me and my 3 sisters at the dinner table, fighting over seconds! I hope you enjoy it as much as we all used to!
