I got this from my Aunt Tancie. She got it from a friend when my uncle was stationed at Fort Bliss (El Paso). She told me the lady was from the Northeast and it was a tad mild, so she kicked it up with the jalapeno and cayenne. This is the perfect dish for those cold winter nights. Hope you like it and let me know what you think.
