Big Ol’ Mess

Jeanne Benavidez


This recipe came from a Marlboro cookbook and is just wonderful. It is very easy yet will taste amazing. Each time I make it I am asked for the recipe. This is a can’t-fail dish for backyard cookouts, tailgate parties, etc. The picture is from the internet because the last time I made this was at a bar-b-que and I didn't get a chance to get pictures before the group got to it.
