    Chabear01's Note:

    Posted for ZWT II 2006 - Mexico. Recipe found on recipelink submitted there by Gladys for Cinco De Mayo celebration meals. Be prepared to use some unusual and different ingredients here, which probably can be purchased from a Carniceria or Mexican Specialty Shop. Marinating time not included in prep or cooking time as it is passive time that can be spent cleaning the house...like yah right...lol.
