I am a sucker for all foods mexican and created this recipe after reading through a lot of others and modifying them to my own tastes and pantry. Excellent served with sour cream for dipping and even better the next day! The sauce is spectacular, adds a whole new dimension to the flavor. Back off the chili powder to make this dish less spicy, or add cayenne to fire it up!
