Recipe by Chef shapeweaver

I found this recipe in a TOH's Quick Cooking cookbook it was submitted to them by Lorna Nault from Chesterton, Indiana.I thought this would be a good recipe to serve with almost any type of Mexican dish.I've changed a couple of things to the recipe based on what I had at home. The changes will be in "( )".If you make it the way it's stated in "( )" it will make enough for 3.Submitted to "Zaar" by me on 3/13/08
