I can't wait to try this tasty-sounding chile, it sounds very simple if not quick to make. I discovered this in a little cookbook put together by high school Homemaking teachers from all over California. The title "A Taste of Mexico" was produced in 1997. It's chock full of easy-to-make Mexican recipes -- and easy-to-make is the name of my game. If you try it before I do, please review and add any suggestions you may have for improvement. Reviewers comments are, for the most part, helpful and full of great ideas.
