This recipe was good and it makes a lot. It also reheats well. We found it to be very bland however, and I recommend increasing the salt and at least doubling the spices and perhaps adding some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

This tastes exactly like my mother's recipe. My husband loved it. The leftovers freeze beautifully.
