I first saw this recipe on blueeyedbride.com. It sounded pretty good so I tried my hand at it about a year ago. Matt (who loves all mexican related foods) loved it and demanded we make it a staple dinner meal rotation. It's pretty easy to make and it makes a ton. And it tastes really good! I made a few ingredient changes from the original that suits our family better.
