Southwestern twist to an old favorite. I got this recipe from a co-worker years ago. We make this quite a bit with corn or flour tortillas.

Yum Yum Yum! This recipe is delicious! I've had it with both corn and flour tortillas, and they are both good, but we prefer flour tortillas. Thanks for posting this, Amy! :) Love ya!
