A deliciously different combination of flavors! Based on the review of 8/6/03, I have changed 3 tbls chile powder to read 3 tbls chile powder (or to taste).

Updating my previous recipe dated 6th of August. With the addition of chili powder this recipe is now out of this world. I did serve it with cayenne and medium salsa on the side, because some volks like it spicier than others. For me, this recipe was perfect.
