    Excellent recipe and directions. Peeps luv'd it. Thanks grandma. If your taste for spices is reserved cut spices in half. My kids gobbled it up.

    I used a 10oz can of diced tomatoes with green chile's instead of the tomato. It worked really well!

I love to cook. I enjoy pretty much any type of cooking...not a very handy baker though. I really enjoy cooking with my smoker pit. Growing up in Texas, I got plenty of practice at it. I also love traditional Mexican food. Not the Tex-Mex stuff. I am half Mexican and my grandmother has heavy influence in my cooking. My favorite dish is Pollo con Calabaza. My grandmother would cook this and time felt like it stood still.
