Awesome recipe! I love to eat at the San Angel Inn and this is perhaps my favorite thing on the menu. I tried this on a whim because I thought my daughter had gotten something too spicy for her so I got this hoping she would eat it. Much to my surprise I was wrong (about the spicyness of my daughter's order) and this was delicious!
