Found this recipe on RecipeRewards and am Posting it for ZWT II 2006 Mexico. I have not tried this yet, but sure sounds good. This looks as if it could make a great dish for pot lucks, or OMAC's.

This recipe was okay.
Great! Super easy too since I prepped everything early. I agree with other reviewers that it could use more heat, but this was perfect for us with a toddler. We doctored up our own portions. I think hominy would be good instead of corn too. Definitely goes into our "favorites"! Thanks!
This was great! Alot of ingredients, but well worth it. Next time I'll use a hot salsa. For our taste it needed a little more kick! Thanks for sharing.
