I can't even remember where I got this recipe, but it is a favorite of my family and in particular my brother-in-law, who requested it everytime he came to visit. I gave hime the recipe and now he makes it for his guests. His first comment about this recipe was "Who needs a Mexican restraunt when you can make this?" I love to make a pot of rice and serve a bit of the sauce over it.
