    MelinOhio's Note:

    My husband loves this and I like the spicy flavor. You may want to add less serrano chili peppers if you don't want that firery feeling. You can use 1 can of chopped green chiles instead of peppers and it will not be as hot.

      Wonderful comfort food. I did not use the serrano peppers because I have a little one. Instead I added canned sliced jalepeno peppers to the bowls of whoever wanted it. Halfway through cooking I added a couple of chopped chicken sausages, about a teaspoon of cumin, and a teaspoon of oregano. I also used four garlic cloves instead of one because we love garlic. Delicious!
