      Made this while staying at a friends. Everyone loved it. I thought it might be too spicy for some as my eyes watered while making this. It was wonderful! You could taste all the different layers. I do recommend that you remove the grease as stated in the recipe! I was surprised at how much there was from the meat & spices. Thanks Lennie. I will make this again & feed it to the picky Dd.
