My husband had open-heart surgery when we were living on the Texas-Mexican border in 2001. The wife of his heart-surgeon, Velda de La Garza, wrote a heart-healthy Mexican cookbook (*Healthy Mexican Cooking*), which we purchased while he was in the hospital. This dish is one of our favorites -- an easy Mexican take on that old favorite, Orange Chicken. We found it needed a little more spice than called for; you could either up the cayenne or leave the jalapeno seeds in. But then we like spicy food!
