Recipe by Brisket in Roses

This is my mom's recipe, a little modified. My family prefers Queso Fresco, but my wife and I prefer Chiuahua Cheese (it's melty, as opposed to queso fresco, which is crumbly). My mom also does not use the tomato sauce I use. I also have to make my mexican rice when I make this. It's a must!
