Recipe by newmama

this was my grandpa's recipe and it's my favorite. it's not super thick but can be if you just add less liquid. he always served it over just a tiny bit of spaghetti or with crackers. it's also good with fritos or cornbread. i never have measured any spices so these are guesstimates.
