Ohhh this is soooo good. I had this for the first time this past year while tailgating at a ND game!! Thanks to the firefighter (who came with our friend Pat) for this recipe. What a chef!

I have friends who are from Cuba who absolutely rave everytime I make this. My hubby is from South Texas and he enjoys this a lot also. I use less of the hot stuff, so I can enjoy it as well, and I do not add all the tomatoes. We like extra bacon added to this, and we use the bacon ends and pieces to make this also. The best sausage is Choritzo :)

This is a good one! Made it as written except cut back on the cilantro and used 4 chilies. Drained before serving. Loved by everyone. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for a winner!

I only had one can of beer so that was all I used. I Also only used 2 cans of tomatoes instead of the 3.
