    TJW's Note:

    This dish is served at my favorite Mexican restaurant in Sacramento, I tweaked the ingredients at home until I got it right. You will love this dish for its simplicity, and its complexity all in one. Serve it with sauteed fresh spinach and mashed potatoes. This is awesome, yet simple and not spicy. Feel free to kick it up a notch with some Habaneros, chipotles, or cayenne pepper.
