From Favorite Brand Name Recipes Cookbook. Just reading this is making me hungry! Nice to serve on top of a bed of rice or shredded lettuce.

Top Review by Chris Reynolds

These are wonderful, with just the right amount of spice. I did one thing differently, however. I let the sauce boil down so it was more like a gravy. The directions do not say to do this and, if you keep the dish covered, it won't happen because the cover will keep the moisture in the pan. So I removed the cover to let the sauce boil down to the thickness I wanted. We loved this recipe and definitely will make it again. Thanks for sharing!
