This recipe is from a pamphlet Del Monte put out. I have been making this for years, as it has become one of our favorites. I must confess I usually substitute a can of plain stewed tomatoes and add my own spices - chipotle powder, garlic powder, cumin and pepper. I use approximately a 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of each, depending on my taste buds that day. Suggest you make it with the Mexican spiced tomatoes for the first time. Ole!
