SUPERB RECIPE! I subbed the tequila for a bit of red wine, and added lime zest and lime juice, cinnamon and a dash of Tabasco and it came out terrific! I'm making it again for Christmas... it's excellent to make a few days ahead of time
This has become a Thanksgiving staple at our house! I omit the tequila but otherwise prepare exactly as directed. Delicious!
