This recipe was delicious. What a great flavor the molasses adds to the sauce. You can also adjust the amount of “heat” really easily depending on what kind of chilis you add. The crowd I made this for are not big fans of spicy food, so I used a milder green chili, and they thought the dish had the perfect mix of a “little spice” and well as sweet. If I made it for me personally, I’d go with a little hotter chili, so that was great. I did only used about half the amount of tomatoes called for. I only had (4) 14 ½ oz cans of diced tomatoes, and by the time I added two of them with juice, it looked just right. Thanks, Barbara for the great recipe. It got thumbs up from the whole family.
