My SIL gave me this recipe several years ago. It is great for potluck meals. Just add a salad and you have a wonderful spicy meal.

This was a very good recipe and easy to make. I will make this again. We used the leftovers for a filling in a burrito with refried beans and our favorite toppings. It was great!
