MY MOM MADE THIS RECIPE FIRST. THE WHOLE FAMILY LOVES IT. I PREFER TO USE THE CHICKEN.

WE DON'T USE ALL OF THE DRIED HOT RED PEPPER FLAKES OR THE CHILE POWDER. ITS SPICY ENOUGH WHEN YOU USE HALF OF THEM 2 SPICES. BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD MORE OR LESS FOR YOUR TASTE.. ENJOY

THE BEANS ARE ALSO OPTIONAL. MY MOM DOESNT LIKE KIDNEY BEANS SO SHE WILL ALWAYS LEAVE THEM OUT.


TIP: GET ALL THE INGREDIENTS OUT AND MEASURED. MIX ALL THE SPICES TOGETHER ( ALL BUT THE SALT). THAT WAY IT MAKES IT EASIER WHEN YOU START TO COOK.
