This was submitted to a local Methodist church's cookbook by Jack Lorenzo, Ninfa's son.Ninfa Lorenzo was the owner/chef of a Mexican restaurant with several locations around the Houston area.Everything that I've ever had at her restaurant is great- Tex-Mex at its finest!You may increase the amount of garlic,cilantro,or pepper sauce according to your taste.

This stuff ROCKS! I've made it quite a few times already. We love it on almost anything mexcan! My favorite is stirring a bit into rice. Great on tacos and so on. Thanks for sharing! :)
