Cancun Steak and Potatoes

Sherri Williams


My hubby always says, there is nothing better than steak and potatoes. This is my lil' mexican twist on his favorite. I had to tone down the "hot" factor because he really can't tolerate the heat like I can. I say, spice it up and serve it up to your love ones. Cooking with Passion, sw:)
