From "The Only Texas Cookbook". This can be served over meats and rice sprinkled with almonds or heat corn tortillas in a dry skillet for about 15 seconds each, then place one or two on a warmed plate, spoon 1/2 cup chicken over tortilla, and cover with sauce. I'm guessing that a deli roasted chicken would save lots of time preparing this. Times include stewing the chicken.
