I made this recipe and took to my granddaughter's Thanksgiving dinner. She works in one of Abuelo's corp offices and when she tasted the recipe she was amazed that I had found a recipe. Her comment was that it was even better than the restaurant, maybe a little spicier. I was asked to share the recipe.
