DH has already ranked this as “The Best New Recipe of 2010” — and 2010 isn’t over yet! LOL
It was simple to throw together, and MEGA flavorful….I think. See, I have this cold…so I’m not sure I’m tasting it 100%. Nonetheless, we both loved it — it will go into the rotation!
Side note: This recipe isn’t spicy…don’t be scared by the 2 cans of chilis…they get dampered down by the creamy add-ins at the end. 🙂
We served it with tortilla chips, but it would also be delicious with cornbread, I think!
